Last night the AEW Double or Nothing PPV event from T-Mobile took place in Las Vegas, Nevada. As usual at this type of event, Tony Khan led a press conference for the media after the show, where he invited many of the stars of the show.
The President of All Elite Wrestling talks about the rumors Company Signs New Agreement With WarnerMedia Discovery Due To Premiere Of New AEW Collision Program, On the day of the announcement, the type of deal was unclear, as Khan noted that The Coalition’s contract was tied to the terms of AEW Dynamite and Rampage.
,Yes, we definitely get paid for Collision and we get paid very well. And of course, in addition to dynamite and rampage, We have a new contract. It’s more money, but it lasts the same amount of time. I was very excited about it. It was a great opportunity for us. Of course, making a two-hour live TV show is very expensive, and doing it every week, over the weekend, it’s not going to be cheap, but it’s going to be great,” Khan said.
“This was a great opportunity for the company to do more television and get more revenue, but also to grow another brand in addition to what we do with Dynamite and Rampage. There will be additional production costs, and we’re not producing Dark and Elevation right now, so there are some cost savings there., Costs will increase, but revenue will also increase, not only from ticket sales and sales, but also from license fees, which we will receive thanks to an incremental change that will increase our compensation for collisions,” Khan explained.
Khan talks about one of his next big events: All IN: London, AEW’s chairman assures that they have reached the number of 65,000 tickets sold And this collection revolves around $8 million. Khan said, “I haven’t released any new figures yet, but we have sold more or less 65,000 tickets.” “We’ve passed the $8 million barrier, taking into account the pound to dollar exchange rate. We’re about to reach $9 million.”

Tony Khan also did not want to confirm CM Punk’s return at this point. When asked about his appearance at AEW Collision, Khan replied:I’m not ready to answer that question yet., I think this is something many people want to know. As we get closer to the release of Saturday Night Collision on June 17th, I have a feeling more and more things will be revealed about that show.”
“Tickets for the United Center are on sale now. We’re off to a great start with early sales, and I have a feeling it’s only going to go higher,” Khan continued to reveal about the AEW Collision premiere. “I expect this to be one of the biggest TV shows of the year in terms of revenue, and one of the biggest TV shows of the year for AEW.”
