Tony Khan Discusses Dan Lambert Appearing On AEW Television; Decision To Pair Ethan ...

In a recent interview with The New York Post, All Elite Wrestling President Tony Khan discussed several topics, including Dan Lambert appearing on AEW television, as well as the decision to pair Ethan Page and Scorpio Sky with Lambert and American Top Team.

“Dan is a really good friend of mine, I got to know him through Masvidal. I wanted to talk to Jorge about coming in and doing the stuff he’s doing right now, being one of the world’s top MMA fighters and lending that credibility to AEW and kicking some a**** in AEW. That was over a year and a half ago, before the pandemic hit. I met Dan through Jorge and what a great guy and what a huge wrestling fan.

I connected with Dan and through the pandemic, he was in Florida and he came and he was part of our bubble, he was backstage and he was in the crowd. He was really good in TNA, the more I got to know him, the more I got to like him. I had this idea that he could be this really good manager and maybe, it would make some sense for some of the fighters to come in and be a stable. I had put together Scorpio Sky and Ethan Page to be foils for Sting and Darby and they worked great together, they have been really great heels for us and they have that legit fighting background.

Scorpio Sky’s got a winning MMA record and is a tough guy and Ethan Page, people don’t think of Ethan Page and think double black belt in karate and taekwondo and people should be thinking that, that was my point to him, that should be part of your presentation, it’s crazy it’s not. I didn’t know that, I had no idea when I put those guys together, I had no idea Ethan Page has two black belts and then, I’m learning more about it and I’m like, this is what we should do. He didn’t even tell me that, I was researching it, I put them together with Dan and they just clicked as people. People had doubts about it, the ratings have been really good and I think the chemistry has gotten better every week.”
