He doesn't owe you a damn thing 😂 😂 😂Great post
It's frustrating. A rich kid who loves pro wrestling and talks about a wrestling product you're not embarrassed to admit to enjoying. Comes along when desperate TV networks at throwing money at companies that can provide high level live content. Meanwhile WWE is such a mess the McMahon's are apologizing live on Raw. A lot of contracts are up for renewal. What a missed opportunity. One which might never happen again - the pandemic has hit the conglomerates in the pocket andor speeded up the transition from linear television to subscription streaming.
I think Khan will forever regret -
1) Not taking the fight to Raw from day one
2) Not going all in for Punk, Orton and Edge
3) Not focusing on what has always hooked fans in as opposed to how he, Kenny and the Bucks view wrestling.
Actually scrap the last one. They'll never fully get how the core basics and emotion baiting draws money over a self referential too cool for school attitude. I mean, to this day Russo still doesn't get why what he wrote for Vince McMahon didn't have the same impact in other products.
But maybe I shouldn't be too hard. I don't know for sure whether TNT would put them on a Monday or what the budget is/was or had he failed to secure a long term TV deal what the implications would be.
As a fan it's very disappointing.
Go risk your own money going up against RAW, spending tens if not hundred of millions more on stars and business.
What's important is that he turns a profit for him in a spam of set time period, usually 2-5 years, and if he can do that playing by his own rules, fair play to him.
He's maintained his viewership for a year now and that's when wrestling is suffering due to no crowds.
