Bodyslam’s Cassidy Haynes reported that on Sunday, AEW President Tony Khan, along with the AEW EVPs, flew to Chicago on a private jet to film promotional footage.
AEW will have Dynamite, Rampage, and All Out in the city in the first week of September at the NOW Arena. This is also when AEW reportedly hopes to have CM Punk make his promotional debut although it has yet to be confirmed he has signed with AEW.
The report stated AEW was looking at the United Center as a possible venue when they eventually return to Chicago. People in AEW were said to be “tight-lipped” about the situation but it was believed that they were filming promo footage for the United Center.
Khan dismissed this report during an appearance on Busted Open Radio.
“There’s been a lot of false rumors out there, that’s the other thing, there are people chasing these things and trying to connect the dots,” Khan said on the show. “I know a lot of the stuff that has been reported in the last week has been totally false.
There’s this website BodySlam, for example, I saw them put a report out that myself and all the EVPs had traveled this past weekend and it was total BS. None of us were even in the same state.
It was total fiction. They tracked my family’s plane, it was my parents on the plane! And then the guy claimed ‘oh, I know which tail number is yours and which one’s your parents,’ it was total fiction and this guy got totally bamboozled by a fake source and it was embarrassing and there’s been a lot of fake reporting like that the last couple of weeks,” Khan continued.
