AEW Worlds End Name Inspired By London Pub
Khan went past the pub and inspiration struck.
Inspiration can strike at peculiar times.
For AEW CEO Tony Khan, it happened when going past a pub on the way to a football match.
Speaking with The Athletic, Khan revealed that the name of upcoming AEW pay-per-view Worlds End was knicked from a boozer.
"It's inspired by London. I was on my way to the Tottenham Hotspur versus Fulham match at Tottenham. I'm looking for a name for the pay-per-view. We passed by the World's End (pub) and I thought, 'That's it'. Like most of the best ideas I've had, including AEW, it was made in London".
Elsewhere during the interview, Khan noted that he has plans for AEW to tour the United Kingdom more extensively, once the tradition of All In at Wembley Stadium is established.
The 41-year-old, who co-owns Fulham F.C. with father Shahid Khan, decided to use a points system for the Continental Classic similar to football, with three points for a victory, one for a draw and zero for a loss. The points system has, on some sections of social media, led to considerable confusion.
