In the preview for AEW’s upcoming Pay-Per-View event, Khan appeared on “Unrestricted” to talk about the card. Although there are 11 matches scheduled, one of them will be a Triple Threat match between Hookhausen against Tony Nese and Mark Sterling. Khan plans to watch the pre-show when it comes time for him to get in the ring.
“So I think [what] I’m going to do is stick with one match on the Buy-In … Because we are here on the West Coast with an early start time for the Buy-In, really the Buy-In is going to start at 4 Pacific and 7 Eastern,” he said. “But I think as far as thewrestling we will get to that a little bit later, pace ourselves for the action.”
For shows such as “AEW Dynamite,” Khan has to work around strict time limits. However, they do not have the same stipulations as pay-per-view events, offering more flexibility to the event. With the possibility that the NBA Eastern Conference Finals will go to game seven, there is a chance that AEW will be looking to stretch out their show in order for the main event not to collide with basketball. It also happens to be a holiday weekend and Tony expects it to be an “action-packed night,” with a sold-out crowd on what is going to be a wild night.
“So it’s interesting because if for any reason we do think it makes sense to add more action we have that ability,” he teased. “And starting the Buy-In a little bit later on the East coast that we’ve been doing, I think we will start the wrestling a little bit later and pace ourselves … I am excited about that and I think it works out really well.”
