Bros. Discovery execs set to meet with Tony Khan next
week, party planned at The Forum in Los Angeles -
May 25, 2022
Khan appeared on Sports Media with Richard Deitsch
this week to talk about making himself easily available
to the media, and shared information about his relationship
with Warner Bros. Discovery.
Khan talking about making himself easily available
to the media:
love wrestling and I love wrestling fans so that part
comes naturally to me. Ive done media in the
past working in football in England with Fulham and
of course in the NFL with the Jaguars. So for me,
it made a lot of sense. It was easier for me to get
booked than some of the wrestlers to promote the shows,
asked, Theres been so much importance
placed on how your television viewership is and how
you do in the 18 to 49 demo, which is obviously a
very important demo when it comes to media buyers
buying and your product. Its not the only thing.
I think measuring how you do on Pay-Per-Views, even
things like how you do on Google search and how you
do on YouTube views. But theres a bit of an
obsession in the industry when it comes to television
viewership. How do you consume AEWs television
metrics and what do you personally consider to be
the most important metric for viewership when youre
evaluating how your business is doing?
responded, We receive ratings reports from Warner
Bros. Discovery. For me personally and for AEW as
a business, the most important metric is the metric
that our network bosses value. In this case, Warner
Bros. Discovery puts a high emphasis on the 18 to
49 demographic. Every viewer is very important. The
one thing that they focus on at the very top, the
top line of the report, is overall 18-49 people and
AEW fairs very well. Its often the number one
show on Wednesdays, and weve ranked at or near
the top on Fridays as well.
said he will be meeting with Warner Bros. Discovery
very excited because were at The Forum next
week. Im really just honored, and its
a great privilege for us because a lot of the top
executives from Warner Bros. Discovery are going to
be at The Forum, Khan said.
got a sold out show. We got a ton of fans coming.
Weve opened up more seats. Its one of
our biggest crowds at one of the biggest sports markets
in the world and some of the greatest wrestling fans.
It means a lot to me personally to be in The Forum
to begin with.
I cant tell you what it means that a lot of
the top executives from Warner Bros. Discovery are
not only coming to the show, but theyre throwing
a great event for us afterwards in The Forum. It means
so much that they would come to the show, but also
a lot of the top executives in the Warner Bros. Discovery
family are going to have an event with us with a lot
of the people in AEW. Were going to hang out
and that means the world to us and getting to know
each other better. Theyve been so supportive
and great coming in. It means so much to us to be
working with the largest producer of content now,
after this great merger, Warner Bros. Discovery, the
biggest in the world.

should move to any other night, get away from us' - Chris Jericho slams WWE with
a bold statement - 4th September 2020
lost! There's nothing wrong with conceiting defeat and moving to a different night."
Chris Jericho had a lot more to say.
are rumors about WWE possibly moving NXT to a different night.
Dynamite and NXT have aired on different days for the past few weeks. As expected,
the results have been quite positive for both companies. Both shows have drawn
huge numbers without any competition, and there is also talk about NXT possibly
moving out from the Wednesday slot. Chris Jericho, who has always been on the
offensive when it comes to AEW's ratings victories over WWE, has sent another
bold message to the WWE.
a recent appearance on the Busted
Open radio show, the Demo God addressed the rumors of WWE contemplating a
change of day for NXT.
Jericho said that he wasn't surprised that the WWE was planning on retreating
from the Wednesday Night Wars. The AEW Superstar sent a direct message to his
former employers that they should move to another night. Chris Jericho felt that
WWE had a great program, and their spiteful tactic of going up against AEW was
only hurting NXT's ratings.
Jericho says WWE should just conceit defeat
Jericho declared that AEW isn't going anywhere and that Dynamite would continue
to beat NXT. Jericho felt that WWE retreating is the right move from a business
standpoint. 'Le Champion' isn't bothered about NXT breaching the 800k or 900k
barriers as he and AEW are focussed on getting over the 1 million mark. He also
spoke about the importance of the 18-49 demographic.
Jericho said that the WWE lost, and there is nothing wrong for them to conceit
defeat. The former AEW World Champion concluded by proclaiming that no one can
stop All Elite Wrestling.
Chris Jericho's full statement on the rumors of WWE moving to another night and
the ongoing ratings war:
again, it was never a war for me. This is a war that was thrust upon us by a company
that is very petty and very spiteful, and we know the reason why NXT was moved
to Wednesday nights. To mess with us. We get it. We pay attention to what we are
doing. We don't care what they're doing, and we have no interest in it. If you
watch us, you get the ratings, where we beat them week after week. We beat them
in the demos where people think it's jokes. The only thing that matters is the
TV networks and advertisers that listed the 18-49 demo. Look it up. We win every
week. They should retreat. They should move to any other night. Get away from
us! You guys got a great program, and it's good; why would you want to sacrifice
your own ratings just to be spiteful and petty to go head to head with AEW? We're
not going anywhere and put on anything you want - we'll continue to beat you.
It is a retreat, but it's also the right move from a business standpoint. Get
your head out of your rear end and just worry about your product the same way
we worry about ours. If they move to Tuesday, smart move. That way, you guys can
get your 850 thousand, 900 thousand. Whatever! Get 10 million viewers. Congratulations!
Let us do our thing, and we'll get over a million. I think it's a smart move business-wise
on theirs. They lost! There's nothing wrong with conceiting defeat, moving to
a different night, and worrying about your show and not worrying about going head
to head with AEW because you can't stop us." H/t WrestlingInc
Chris Jericho is just doing his job of putting over AEW, many fans would argue
that both shows airing on different nights would be the right decision as they
can watch both shows. The ratings and viewership figures from the past few weeks
have proven that putting out shows on separate days could be ideal for moving
don't forget to check out the latest interview from Sportskeeda in which our very
own Gary Cassidy caught up with Chris Jericho. The legendary star discussed a
plethora of topics, including the possibility of Brock Lesnar coming to AEW, the
origins of his nickname, Jon Moxley, Orange Cassidy, and much more.
