AEW Owner, CEO and General Manager Tony Khan agrees with fans who have criticized how Satnam Singh was presented for the first time.
The former professional basketball player 7 3 appeared after the lights went out at the end of Wednesday night’s episode of . dynamite.
“I could have done it better,” Khan said. I tuned an open radio Friday. “It’s like – you know, it’s one of those things. I wish I did it a little differently because the fans will always be right. So, if the fans don’t like something, sometimes – there are some things about it where you try to get in heat And it’s an attitude of “trying to turn up the heat.” People won’t always like it. But there were things about it that I probably should have done differently, and now I’m seeing it too late.
“And to be honest, it wasn’t my idea to turn off the lights but I am the ultimate candidate. I’m the one going through it. I put the outline of the show together and when I came on Wednesday I thought it was the best outline I’ve ever put together. At least one of them. It was …wrestling is as tough as it can fit on the show and I thought up until that point the show was excellent.
“And then, that was the one thing we kind of started with. People might not like it. Someone important to us would sleep. It was important to delineate him in a meaningful way towards the end of the show. With Jay Lethal he’d be a force to be reckoned with. At the same time, lights out. For someone that people haven’t recognized – that’s a great point.
“And to be honest, when – well, the guy who raised the lights out has over 30 years of experience in pro wrestling, and when they brought it up to me, I was just looking at the pros and I had to think about the negatives because that’s my job as the one who decides what Who gets in and who filters these thoughts. We had all these people in the room and somehow there wasn’t a single person who, when this idea came up, took out the negatives. And then, when we did that, all of a sudden all the negatives became very clear.
Tony Khan did not reveal who suggested switching off the ring lights before Satnam Singh’s appearance. sing Signed with AEW last september and training done At the Nightmare Factory in Atlanta operated by Cody Rhodes and QT Marshall.
“I should have seen the negatives before we did that,” Tony Kahn lamented. And I really didn’t see them until it actually happened. And then I said, ‘Okay, sure.’ But that’s not Satnam’s fault. It’s definitely not Jay Lethal’s fault. And so, at the same time, I’m really excited about it. I think it created a lot of noise. Satnam’s debut was the most watched thing of the show and honestly, it’s got international attention I wanted to have it. But I didn’t want a lot of great things to loom over the show and I don’t think it happened or was going to happen because there was a lot of great wrestling on that show. So I’m really excited about it.
“But the fans will always be right. So, for example, I think it’s one of those times I appreciate their feedback and now, because I’m in the third year of doing this, I’m not going to do it again. And these are the things that you’re going to learn in year three that I’m going to do differently in the fourth or fifth year.”
