He doesn’t seem to agree. The wrestling world has been changed in a lot of ways in recent years, with nothing shaking it up more than the rise of AEW. After so many years of WWE holding a monopoly over the entire industry, AEW has come along and become the other big player. A lot of that is due to AEW President Tony Khan, who has something to say about the way WWE presents its television.

Khan made an appearance on a recent edition of the Wrestling Perspective Podcast, where he spoke on the amount of rematches that took place in both AEW and other promotions. Khan mentioned that shows outside of AEW have “like 17 rematches with the same two people.” Since AEW’s debut, Khan has mentioned that his company does not like to present multiple rematches between the same wrestlers.

Khan does have a point in some cases. Check out some WWE rematches:

Opinion: I can see what Khan means in something like this, but there are situations where a rematch makes sense. There could be a feud that people want to see or that is so good that it gets fans’ attention, which would be the kind of thing that keeps them coming back. WWE absolutely goes too far with it sometimes, but there is a middle ground that could work out for both sides.

What do you think of Khan’s comments? What makes a rematch work? Let us know in the comments below.
