Ahead of this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, owner Tony Khan posted a tweet promising that events on Dynamite would ‘shift the balance of power in wresting’.
Tonight we have a great lineup for #AEWDynamite Live on TNT at 8pm ET/7pm CT! For the rest of 2020, #AEW will keep delivering great matches on Wednesday Nights + there are massive surprises ahead! Please join us on TNT tonight, the balance of power in wrestling will shift tonight— Tony Khan (@TonyKhan) November 11, 2020
Whilst individuals in Khan’s position in wrestling companies have long been all too quick to over-promise and over deliver (How often did Dixie Carter suggest a TNA announcement would change wrestling forever?), Khan and AEW have built up a groundswell of goodwill that they must be careful to protect by not betraying their audience’s trust.
As such, Khan felt it important to qualify his remarks in a post-Dynamite tweet for anyone feeling let down.
Thank you everyone who watched #AEWDynamite last night! A shift in wrestling’s balance of power has begun & the winners will be the wrestling fans. PAC’s returned after 8 months & I have aces up the sleeve in the weeks ahead. You won’t get them all at once but you’ll get them all— Tony Khan (@TonyKhan) November 12, 2020
Khan claims he purely meant the balance of power would begin to shift. it will be interesting to see how fans react the next time he makes a proclamation like this, such is his growing reputation for hyperbole.
