Tony Khan: AEW Double Or Nothing Was Better Than WWE WrestleMania 37
Fiery comments from the AEW boss
All Elite Wrestling President Tony Khan says AEW Double Or Nothing over the past two years has been better than WWE's flagship pay-per-view, WrestleMania.
Both of last year's events were filmed behind closed doors due to the COVID-19 Pandemic but WWE and AEW each welcomed back fans for WrestleMania 37 and Double Or Nothing 2021 respectively.
Despite saying he enjoyed this year's WrestleMania, Khan has stirred the rivalry between AEW and WWE by saying, in his mind, there is no doubt that AEW's top event was better than WrestleMania.
Speaking on Barstool Sports’ Pardon My Take, Khan said: "I’ll tell you something; Double or Nothing last year and this year, in my opinion, was a better show (than WrestleMania).
"I liked this year’s WrestleMania a lot better than last years. They had some fans this year and everyone there worked their ass off both years.
"This year I thought, both (were) good shows. They did a two night show and it was a good show. But I thought Double or Nothing this year was outstanding and it was the best wrestling show of the year so far. And last year Double or Nothing, during the pandemic, it kicked the s--t out of WrestleMania last year. The pandemic version last year? Not even close. Double or Nothing was a much better show."
