Tony Khan Says Kenny Omega Topping PWI’s 500 Was “No Surprise”


AEW President Tony Khan has reacted to the news of Kenny Omega topping PWI’s 500 list, saying it was “no surprise.”

Speaking on the most recent edition of “Busted Open Radio”, Khan said,

“No surprise, no surprise, I think it’s very well deserved. It’s a great honor for Kenny. Last year Jon Moxley was a great number one representative for AEW, and I think it’s awesome for Kenny Omega to be number one in the PWI. I think it’s a lot of milestones for AEW this week and a lot of firsts. It’s definitely the best PPV card I’ve ever been associated with, and I’m just so proud of all our team.”

“To be able to come to TV tonight and say ‘this is our crew.’ To be able to look around our locker room and have CM Punk, Bryan Danielson, Adam Cole, Ruby Soho and all these great new faces in AEW, it’s pretty special. Things have changed a lot in AEW, and I really believe we have the best roster in all of wrestling right now. So it’s very fitting that our world champion, Kenny Omega, is the number one ranked wrestler in the world.”
