Tony Khan, is taking exception to the WWE’s, Triple H’s recent comments.

In the recently released American Nightmare: Becoming Cody Rhodes documentary on Peacock, HHH at one point says about Rhodes’ journey and AEW: It’s taking that gamble again and saying, ‘I didn’t grow up dreaming of being the champion or the face of a secondary promotion. I wanted to be the WWE champion’.

Speaking to Jay Reddick of The Orlando Sentinel about AEW Dynamite reaching its milestone 200th episode, Khan shot back with:

“We certainly won’t be the secondary promotion at All In. We’re No. 1 in the UK, on TV and with a record gate. I have a lot of respect for Cody. I know these weren’t his words, to be fair, but we’re not secondary in a lot of markets — for the first time in a long time, WWE has been secondary in a lot of markets. … I’m proud of where we’re at and we’re not taking a back seat to anybody.”

In talking about the 200th episode Khan revealed that AEW will be announcing some of the All-In matches on Aug. 27th from Wembley Stadium on Dynamite tonight.

“It’s so exciting that some of the stars that have been with AEW since the beginning are part of this show,” Khan said. “It’s a very important part of the company’s history.”
