The founder of All Elite Wrestling discusses a litany of topics ahead of a big week for the organization. Tonight’s episode of AEW Dark features twelve matches, including appearances by “Big Money” Matt Hardy, The Dark Order, and women’s tag team action. Here’s a preview of tonight’s AEW Dark card, airing at 7pm EST on YouTube.
All Elite Wrestling has taken the pro wrestling world by storm since the company was formed in 2019.Leading the way is founder, CEO, GM and head of creative of the organization, Tony Khan. Along with running AEW, Khan is also the owner, director of football, GM and sporting director of the Fulham Football Club.
It is a big week for the company. AEW revealed on Tuesday that former undisputed heavyweight champion and boxing legend, Mike Tyson, returns for the first time since last May on Wednesday’s edition of AEW Dynamite.
Then on Friday, the company will be running its first house show, titled “The House Always Wins.”
Ahead of all the events, Khan spoke with DAZN News on Tyson’s AEW return, running the first house show and the situation of Chris Jericho appearing on “Stone Cold” Steve Austin’s podcast.
DAZN: You guys sent the press release about Mike Tyson appearing on Dynamite. How did it all come about so quickly, because it was something we hadn’t seen Mike since he was on the show in May?
Tony Khan: Mike and I are good friends. Mike and I stayed in touch over the past year. He was at Double or Nothing and then Dynamite last May. I was really excited about Mike’s fight with Roy Jones (in November). I talked to him as he was training, and I talked to him right after the fight, too. He called me right after he got home. He was really excited about coming back to AEW. I told him you got to rest your body, and when you’re ready, we’d love to have you back, and we’ll try to find a date that works for everybody. So we were staying in touch, and this is a date that worked out for everybody.
DAZN: This is a huge week for the company. You got Mike appearing on Dynamite, and then you have your first house show this coming weekend at Daily’s Place in Jacksonville. What was the main reason for wanting to put on your first house show?
TK: It’s great for us that we have a really good Dynamite card this week and a great crowd coming, and we have a big crowd for Dynamite that we expected this week. We thought it would be a great week that we’ve got the ring set up. We’ve got a great crew in town in Jacksonville, and we have the ring, the stage, and Daily’s Place all set up for a wrestling show. Friday night is a great night for the fans, and it felt like it would be a good opportunity to experiment with putting on a great card for the live fans and doing something for the people in Jacksonville. I must stress how important the fans in Jacksonville have been.
They’ve helped AEW. They’ve helped the wrestlers and the matches. They’ve helped our shows, but they’ve also helped fans around the world enjoy the show. There have been a lot of moments in AEW where the live crowd in the past year made a huge difference. I think probably the most important was the Brodie Lee Memorial show. I think when Darby (Allin) won the TNT title and the Young Bucks winning the tag team titles for the first time at Full Gear. The live crowd, those moments were a huge part of it. The pops were real and great when Sting debuted at Winter is Coming. A huge pop there. The reaction was a different reaction when Kenny Omega won the title from Mox (Jon Moxley). They’re just a lot of moments where the fans and their reactions have been a very important part of it, and it wouldn’t have been the same without them.
DAZN: I’ve seen this a lot on social media as the narrative has been that you’re running a house show because your competition (WWE) is having shows about three hours away the following two days after the live event. What do you say to people that are running with that narrative?
TK: I’m running a show because my competition is running? I’m running a show in my own building at home that I don’t have to change out a single set piece for. I’ve already got the ring set up there, and the wrestlers are already in town. I already paid for their travel into Jacksonville, so I’ve got a crew of wrestlers in Jacksonville, Florida, in my own building, in my own ring. (Laughs) It’s like, I traveled and put the show on somebody else’s lawn. I’m just doing a show in my own building. If anybody’s around Jacksonville or in the area would like to come, I think they’re more than welcome. But it’s a show in Jacksonville. It’s not a show anywhere else in Florida.
The idea that I’m doing a show with people three hours away to try and get people to come from three hours away is something. I am encouraging people to come from wherever and if people want to make that drive, I think it’s awesome. But you can’t schedule a show based around planning to get people driving for three hours. Most of the people are going to come to the show are going to be from Jacksonville. I know people are coming from all over, which is great. That’s the case when we do pay-per-views and a lot of our big shows. We’ve had people come to Jacksonville from all over. I definitely encourage it. But it’s not like I scheduled this show in my own building, in my own ring, without having to move a single set piece or having to do any travel when all the wrestlers are already in Jacksonville. It is probably a big-time stretch to say that I’m trying to do it to get people to drive in from three hours away.
Although I know some people are doing that, it’s great, and I’m very appreciative of it. I want to make it sound like I’m not. I’m very, very appreciative of everybody taking the drive. But I’m also trying to do things to take care of the people locally in Jacksonville, and it seemed like a good weekend to run a show. We primarily draw in Jacksonville, but we can also get some people from all over.
DAZN: You made some big news on Friday. Usually, Friday’s a slow news day. Then it came out that Chris Jericho is appearing on Steve Austin’s podcast. Can you explain a little bit what led to Chris being able to appear on Steve Austin’s podcast?
TK: Chris came to me in my office, and he mentioned there was an opportunity he wanted to talk to me about. He had been talking to Steve, and there was this idea that Chris could be on Steve’s show and appear on Peacock with Steve. Steve had gone to Vince (McMahon, WWE Chairman), and Vince had given Steve his permission to have Chris on the show. But they needed my permission to get Chris on the show. Chris wasn’t sure I was going to say yes, but he wanted to ask me. I told him, after thinking about it for a moment, that I thought it was a great idea.
Chris is a friend of mine. Steve’s a friend of mine, and I have a solid respect for both of them. I also trust them both immensely. I felt like it would be a really positive conversation. I didn’t think it would turn into anything negative at all knowing the two guys involved. It felt like it would be a real win-win situation.
DAZN: Is it something to where the fact both parties (you and McMahon) did agree to this, is it still where you get to watch it beforehand to make sure everything is kosher?
TK: I didn’t demand a final cut. Going into it, that’s one of those things I could have done. I could have said that’s fine, and you guys can do this, and I want the final cut or something like that. I think this is one of the reasons why people like dealing with me. I’m not going to make things overly difficult if they don’t need to be. I think Steve and Chris had a great interview, and I didn’t want to turn it into a legal pissing match between the two companies where I’m demanding a final cut if they have Chris on their show. I trust Steve. I trust Chris. I don’t know if I trust these guys (WWE), but I don’t think they’re going to just totally hack up Steve’s show either. In this situation, I did trust everybody involved, and I didn’t think it would be conducive. We’re all so busy. We all have a lot going on.
I didn’t think it would be conducive to the nature of the project, especially when you know we’re all friends and in terms of Chris and Steve being friends with people on both sides. Chris works for us. Steve works for them. Steve’s a friend of mine and Chris is a friend of theirs. It was a unique situation, and that’s why I think it got done. I didn’t need to demand a final cut. I haven’t seen it. I’ve heard about it from Chris. They might make some changes to it. I don’t know. But I’m pretty comfortable with Chris and Steve sitting down and talking about just about anything.
DAZN: What else can the fans expect on this loaded Dynamite on Wednesday night?
TK: The Inner Circle will be there. They’re going to return. This will be the first one we heard from The Inner Circle since Jericho was assaulted and since The Pinnacle was formed. Chris says they’re going to be a big revelation. I think that’s going to be really exciting and interesting for the fans to see. We’ve got some other fun surprises planned for the show. I think it’s going to be an awesome night of wrestling and surprises. There’s some nights where it’s a big focus on wrestling, where it’s all bell to the bell focused.
In general, anytime you watch AEW Dynamite, you’re going to see some great wrestling. It’s not like we do a bunch of short two, three-minute matches and focus on backstage action the whole show. You might see some backstage segments, but in general, you’re going to see a lot of great wrestling on all of our shows. This show will be a good mix of both of these. There will be some great storytelling and some great matches, and I think it’ll be hopefully a show that will be very memorable and put us in a great position next week and going forward.

Sisters Ashley Vox & Delmi Exo, aka Sea Stars, will make their proper AEW debut as a tag team tonight, having been working on the indies for the past several years. The duo have a number of titles to their credit and currently hold the SHIMMER Tag Team Championships. Vox debuted for AEW back in January, in a losing effort against Thunder Rosa, Exo made her AEW Dark debut last week, teaming with Vox and Vertvixen against Big Swole, KiLynn King, and the also recently-signed Red Velvet. Tonight will be the proper debut of the Sea Stars as a duo, taking on Vertvixen & Jazmin Allure.
JD Drake Gears Up For TNT Title Shot
JD Drake has been making a name for himself on the U.S. indies over the past several years, including winning the EVOLVE Tag Team Titles with Anthony Henry. While Henry signed with WWE, Drake arrived in AEW, debuting on Dark February 23 in a losing effort to Eddie Kingston. He’s bounced back since then, defeating Fuego Del Sol on the March 23 Dark, and is in line for a shot at the TNT Championship against Darby Allin tomorrow night on Dynamite. Tonight, however, Drake looks to build momentum for that title match when he takes on Baron Black. Ryan Nemeth will be in Drake’s corner, and Drake will later be in Nemeth’s corner when he takes on Fuego Del Sol.
Best for everything: YouTube TV
Last year our streaming service pick for NFL fans was PlayStation
Vue at $55 a month, but Sony shut down its service earlier this year.
That leaves cord-cutters with two more expensive options.
Want RedZone for following your fantasy team? That’s available on
either service as part of an add-on for an extra $11 per month.
YouTube TV users can add the Sports Plus add-on by clicking on
your profile and going to Settings, then the Membership tab.
FuboTV users can go into My Profile and choose Manage Add-ons
for its Sports Plus offering.
Both YouTube TV and FuboTV’s Family plan allow for three
simultaneous streams, with YouTube offering unlimited cloud DVR
and FuboTV offering 500 hours of storage. The two services are
widely available too, with apps on iOS and Android, the web and on
TVs through Roku, Chromecast, Android TV, Apple TV and Fire
TV.The budget alternative for NFC fans in big cities:
Those looking to save some cash might want to check out Sling Blue for $30 a
month. While it lacks ESPN, meaning you’ll miss out on Monday Night Football,
in select markets you’ll be able to get Fox and NBC. The catch is that those
markets are mainly in big cities, so if you live outside one of those areas, Sling
Blue might not be for you.
The FCS and Dish agreement during Week 10 restored the NFL Network to the
Sling Blue package while allowing sports fans to add RedZone through the
company’s $10 per month Sports Extra add-on.
Budget alternatives: CBS All Access, Locast or
an antennaThere are some apps that offer CBS’ slate of Sunday AFC games live, including
CBS All Access for $6 per month. Depending on where you live, however, your
local CBS station (and those NFL games) might not be available. CBS offers live
streaming services in many markets; you can check for yourself if your area has
live CBS streaming here.
Locast, meanwhile, is 100% free. It’s currently offered in only 23 cities, however,
and not all will have CBS, Fox and NBC. And as we mentioned above, an over-
the-air antenna connected to your TV provides another free option, no streaming
required, as long as you have good reception.
Other Paid Options with Free Trials
Amazon Prime Video
All Thursday Night Football games can be live-streamed using Amazon prime
video. If you already have a prime subscription, you can stream the games at no

package doesn’t include FCS coverage, but users can watch ESPN, NBC, Fox, and
CBS for a fee.
What’s missing?: FCS Redzone and FCS Network
Subscribers will have access to sports channels including ESPN and NFL Network.
Additionally, there is an option for a 7 day free trial and for an extra $10.99, you
can watch FCS Redzone too.
What’s missing?: ABC
This may be the most comprehensive option for streaming FCS in 2020. With
Youtube TV, you can access every channel you need for the FCS (and more).
However, you will have to pay an additional $10.99 for Redzone similar to
Both streaming services will be available via mobile apps on Android and IOS.

Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian is starting a $150 million investment fund,
according to SEC documents, the explorer’s first project by now stepping beside

Other Streaming Services

AT&TV Now, Vidgo, and CBS All Access.

week 10. Not the worst option for casual fans who don’t need a full blown cable
Finally, DirecTV will offer a non-satellite version of NFL Sunday ticket to people
living in apartments or condos. These fans will be able to watch every Sunday
afternoon game live.
Thursday Night Football: FCS Network, Fox, Amazon Prime and Twitch
Thursday Night Football is probably the most complicated part of the FCS
streaming schedule. Most games will be available on the NFL Network, Fox,
Amazon Prime Video and Twitch.
As mentioned above, if you want the NFL Network you’re going to need FuboTV
or YouTube TV or use the Yahoo Sports app.
A frequent fan-favorite method of following all the NFL action, RedZone is a way
to catch every big play around the league. The cheapest road to RedZone is
through YouTube TV or FuboTV and getting either of their respective $11 per
month sports add-ons.
If you’re fine with watching on your phone, the NFL offers RedZone as an in-app
subscription for $35 for the season. While one of the cheapest options for getting
RedZone, as The TV Answer Man points out, it is a bit tricky to find this option
and you will only be able to watch through the NFL app on your iPhone or
With Dish making peace with the FCS, Sling TV Blue and Sports Extra is another
option. This will run $40 per month ($30 for Sling Blue plus $10 for Sports Extra
add-on), but can be streamed on a host of devices including iOS, Android, Apple
TV, Roku, Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV and in web browsers.
Sling is currently offering RedZone and Sports Extra for free for one month for
new Sling Blue subscribers.
If you only subscribe to Sling’s Orange package you won’t be able to get RedZone
in Sports Extra. Your base package needs to be either Sling Blue or its larger Sling
Blue Plus Orange bundle to be able to get RedZone as an add-on.
