In recent weeks, AEW & Ring of Honor head Tony Khan has taken increased criticism for the focus on ROH titles and storylines on AEW TV.
In an interview with the Battleground podcast Tuesday, Khan responded to those critics, saying he has tried to limit ROH content on Dynamite to just that of its champion.
“One thing I have tried to do…I think we only have three hours of AEW TV a week so I have tried to limit the Ring of Honor focus on Dynamite to mostly the Ring of Jericho and Chris Jericho, the ROH World Champion,” he said.
He added that he has tried to keep the other ROH title matches on either AEW Rampage or Dark: Elevation and found it “amusing” when he saw someone saying they thought there was too much ROH on Dynamite.
Khan feels that having a variety of new ROH-aligned wrestlers has been, and will continue to be, good for ROH business. He said they have made “good money” on the pay-per-views since he took over and “frankly, (the money) has been in line with what I paid for the entire business.”
He expects Saturday’s Final Battle to garner some of their best numbers yet thanks to the main event of Jericho vs. Claudio Castagnoli with the stakes involved.
In talking about Shane Taylor’s appearance on Rampage, Khan also took a subtle shot at rival Eric Bischoff’s criticisms about the company, saying “it would be ironic that the same promoter” would not approve of him putting Taylor on AEW TV without any explanation when he used to do just that with WCW Nitro.
