Tony Khan Says AEW Would Never Hold A WWE WrestleMania Weekend Show

WrestleMania weekend has become one of the busiest weekends for the entire wrestling business

WrestleMania weekend is just around the corner, with the days surrounding WWE’s premier event becoming a massive festival of wrestling, with many independent promotions running shows Mania weekend to capitalise on all the wrestling fans in the area.

This year, ROH’s return PPV Supercard of Honor XV is scheduled for WrestleMania weekend, but new ROH owner Tony Khan explained on Busted Open Radio that it was not his decision to run WrestleMania weekend:

"I only know one way to do pay-per-view and it's going 100% and doing the best you can. I promise to make that pay-per-view great. I know there are a lot of people who are going to be around the Dallas Metroplex area at that time. This is my first time going out there for that particular event weekend. It's not normally something I would do, it's not normally something AEW would do. It's not something AEW would ever do and we're not doing it. The event had been scheduled in advanced by Ring of Honor and the tickets had been sold, I felt the right thing to do would be do right by the fans and have the show and make it the best show I possibly could, even though it's unusual for us to go into enemy territory and run a show that weekend. It's normally something associated with smaller wrestling companies and something I didn't want to do. Since it was booked and the fans are committed to it, I'm gonna go in 100% and make it the best show I possibly can. I never expected to be talking about WrestleMania weekend and the logistics of the shows there," Khan said.
