During an appearance on AEW’s Unrestricted podcast, AEW President Tony Khan commented on the Covid-19 pandemic affecting business:

“We’ve talked a lot about what it took to put the show on, but let’s be honest. Why we’re doing it. For AEW, our partnership with TNT, putting on great shows, is our revenue stream right now cause we’re not doing the big events.”

“This was going to be the best run of business we’ve ever had. And we’ve lost millions and millions and millions of dollars in live events and I don’t take it lightly, but I can’t take it out on the people that work here cause it’s not their fault,” he added. “We’ve really never let anybody go here as a company. I’m gonna be honest, there’s gonna be a day when someday we’re going to have to, but now is not the time.”
