The ‘First Dance’ being a sellout is fueling up the rumors that CM Punk will be making his return to the ring at the event. Daniel Bryan also could be making his debut soon.

Khan had visioned making an impact in the wrestling market with his idea of AEW when he had pitched it to TNT three years back.

He said: “It’s the dream. It’s also a lot of what I pitched to TNT. This is all a dream come true. Three years ago, I was in TNT’s office. I hadn’t signed a single wrestler. And I was telling them ‘we can do this. We can recreate the competition in wrestling that will rise wrestling as a whole.’”

Tony Khan also believed that it was an opportunity to recreate the competition in wrestling that existed twenty years ago between WCW and WWE. He said that: “This competition is real, free agency is real, people going back and forth, people showing up on a new show is hot and exciting and a lot of what fueled the industry in the ’90s.”

Khan said that competition not existing “led to some staleness up until a few years ago.” With AEW, WWE has gotten a competition that did not exist for a long time.

Tony Khan’s company has now reignited the fierce competition in the pro wrestling business and he assured that bigger things are also lined up for future.
