She can go out there and have a hardcore match. I think she’s a total package that we have as far as an example for a woman wrestler today.

She leaves and comes back, and then she like, it’s like she never left” Cargill added. “I think she’s phenomenal at what she does. People can say whatever they want, I think she’s a great wrestler.”

AEW owner Tony Khan is sharing his thoughts on a potential sale of his big competitor WWE, after rumors circulated that Khan, and his father, were among those interested in exploring a potential WWE purchase.

“I am interested in the news that there is potentially a sales process and certainly, I think we’ve shown, when there are acquisitions and transactions, we’re capable of making the big purchases, whether my dad steps up with the (Jacksonville) Jaguars or Fulham FC in the Premier League and he’s done such a great job building up the club and putting resources into it and we’re playing football at a high level” Khan said, during an appearance on The Maggie and Perloff Show.

“With AEW, we’ve shown that we can build a company. Even when I purchased Ring of Honor, that’s a very different thing than WWE, but Ring of Honor is a company with 20 years of history and I really have enjoyed running it and we’ve shown that we’re at all time highs in terms of every business metric since we relaunched it and it’s only going to get better. AEW is my main focus, but certainly, when that news is out there, it’s very interesting. Stay tuned to AEW Dynamite and AEW Rampage, you never know when I’m going to address something. On the other hand, it’s very preliminary to talk about that process. If there is a process there, which it sounds like there may be, I’m interested in being part of it.”

Khan also spoke on is he had any relationship with the McMahon family.

“No, I don’t have any relationship with him” he said. “I’ve talked with Stephanie and have had good conversations with Stephanie, but I don’t know Vince at all.”
