“We’re bringing an emphasis on wrestling matches and action taking place in or around the ring. We’ll do great interviews too, but in these segments, we can do it all in the arena and around the ring," he explained.

"We can do some stuff backstage; we just don’t spend half the show backstage. We want to offer people a show that doesn’t insult their intelligence, and really, it’s a fun show to watch.”

Khan also described AEW's product as the best wrestling action with the best wrestling personalities out there. He reveals having come up with the idea of starting up a wrestling company about a year and a half ago, meeting TNT president Kevin Riley at a party, and discussing the notion.

We Can Get On Board With That In-Ring Thing, Right?

While WWE has made backstage content a thing over its many years of existence, AEW wants to keep everything in or near the ring. They did have a great backstage bit during the pilot episode of Dynamite that showed Jon Moxley smashing Kenny Omega through a glass coffee table.

We certainly wouldn't mind more of the same, so let's hope Khan lives up to his word.
