Tony Khan is confident AEW Rampage will be a better show than WWE SmackDown on Friday.
Rampage and SmackDown will go head-to-head for a half-hour on Friday, October 16 with SmackDown airing on Fox Sports 1 for an extra 30-minutes. When the announcement was made that SmackDown would be 30-minutes longer, Tony Khan tweeted that he was excited to beat WWE's main show.
Speaking to Robbie Fox on My Mom's Basement, Khan discussed WWE's move to run against Rampage.
"It's the second time they've decided to go head-to-head with us. I want the fans to be able to watch all the wrestling. I'll coin a phrase right now, WYW; Watch Your Wrestling. I want people to watch your wrestling. Whatever you want to watch, watch it. A lot of people have chosen to watch AEW because it's the best show. Watch Your Wrestling. I want people to watch everything. It's the second time they've chosen to put their wrestling head-to-head with mine. The last time they did it, it didn't happen overnight, but from the start, AEW consistently did better numbers than NXT and we eventually won that war and AEW is now the Wednesday night show and Wednesday Night Dynamite has had a great run. On Friday, they're doing a half-hour head-to-head with Rampage, which is new. I put my show on consciously after SmackDown knowing there is a huge audience of people that watch that show and a lot of people are going to watch Rampage, which has been a hit for TNT. They're literally going to do a half-hour head-to-head, that's fine. We'll see what happens. I'm not saying for sure we'll win and maybe the odds are against us in some ways, but we're going to do the better show, I know. If you don't believe me, watch the go-home show [Raw] they did last night because it sucked," he said.
On Tuesday afternoon, Khan announced a Buy-In show for AEW Rampage that will air on YouTube beginning at 9 p.m. ET. On the show, Bryan Danielson will take on Minoru Suzuki.
