Ahead of AEW All Out, Tony Khan answers questions from the media. To no surprise, many have their minds set on getting the update with CM Punk. This week, it was reported on WWT Live that CM Punk will not be involved in AEW All Out weekend.
Outside of the men's drama, Kris Statlander and Ruby Soho face off this Sunday for the TBS Championship.
Towards the end, I asked Tony Khan about the growing feud between Kris Statlander and Mercedes Martinez being placed on hold for now while Ruby Soho becomes the next challenger for the TBS Championship.
Even though the direction is still unclear, Tony Khan speaks highly of Mercedes Martinez.
I have a ton of respect for Mercedes Martinez as she's been great in ROH and that's why I called her in to come work on AEW Collision, she will be great on any show.
In closing, he mentions the match between Kris Statlander and Mercedes Martinez. He notes that whoever comes out victorious will have a heavy amount of competition waiting for them. Nevertheless, he ends by saying there could be a possible rematch for Martinez down the line.
Regarding ROH, Tony Khan mentions Athena and Billie Starkz. In addition, he states that he does have plans for both talents that may happen for Zero Hour. First things first, Billie Starkz must be cleared.
