Tony Khan recently spoke with Kevin Walsh from Sports Grid for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.
During the discussion, the AEW and ROH President spoke about AEW's relationship with online betting website Draft Kings and how the collaboration is a lot of fun for gambling fans.
Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview where he touches on this topic with his thoughts.
On AEW’s relationship with DraftKings: "Well we’ve got a great relationship with DraftKings. Certainly have worked together closely in the NFL and DraftKings involved in many sports. I work in sports, not just in football and wrestling but I also own a company in Boston where I am right now called TruMedia Networks and we provide analytics and engineering services to 25 out of the 30 Major League Baseball clubs and a number of media partners."
On the collaboration being a lot of fun for gamblers: "So, working in sports all over the world is one of my big interests and with pro wrestling, there’s absolutely a connection with the gambling world and with DraftKings. We found a great partnership and DraftKings has supported a lot of the big AEW pay-per-view events and a lot of the biggest AEW Dynamite shows like AEW Blood & Guts on TBS recently… In general with big shows, DraftKings has come in and offered odds on not just who wins and loses but also a lot of prop bets within the wrestling matches so it’s a lot of fun."
