Tony Khan Reveals WWE Have Reached Out About Interviewing AEW Talent For Biographical Content
Khan is open to the idea
Tony Khan has revealed that WWE officials recently reached out to him about using AEW talent for interviews in upcoming non-scripted content.
Despite the budding competition between WWE and AEW, the two companies have not been afraid to cross-over when it suits both, with the biggest example being when AEW's Chris Jericho was interviewed by Steve Austin for his Broken Skull Sessions show on the WWE Network.
AEW President Khan says WWE have again reached out about people under contract with AEW potentially doing interviews for upcoming biographical pieces they are working on, something he is open to agreeing to.
Khan also admitted he has never spoken directly with WWE Chairman Vince McMahon.
Speaking on My Mom's Basement with Robbie Fox, Khan said: "I heard from them recently. They were doing a lot of biographies and they wanted to use some of the people here and I think that's the thing, it's probably going to come out sooner or later in interviews, or they want to interview some of the people that wrestle here that used to wrestle there, and some people that have had a history in [promotions with] the other libraries that they own.
"So we'll see, you know, I think — I'm open to talking. I heard from them and they were very nice. We've heard from [WWE] a couple of other times. We did the thing last year — Chris Jericho did the thing with Steve Austin. That made sense to me because of Steve. I trust Steve and Chris completely. Steve's a friend of mine.
"As long as everything's classy, and this, the way they approached me was very classy. So I have nothing bad to say about that. I don't know if we'll see that competition head-to-head, but I am considering some of these requests on some of these biographies. It was actually a very nice call I received the other day, but I've never actually talked to Vince himself."
