AEW Revolution media call: Tony Khan on the Omega/Moxley finish

AEW president Tony Khan talked to the media as part of a post-Revolution conference call Sunday and attempted to explain the flat finish of the show that saw Eddie Kingston cover Jon Moxley from "explosions" that more resembled a watered down version of Goldberg's entrance pyro.

You can listen to the whole audio down below.

Khan said the explanation is that Kenny Omega built a faulty ring and that his plan to blow up Moxley ultimately failed which was a good thing. He referred to Omega's crayon drawing of the setup several times and questioned whether fans actually thought they were going to blow people up.

He never admitted to any pyrotechnic failure nor was he asked why Kingston continued to lay on Moxley despite no visual danger to either man.

Khan also said the Christian Cage signing came up over the past few weeks and that he was initially bummed when he saw him return in the Royal Rumble as he didn't know he was interested in returning to the ring. Cage called him and said he was interested in AEW and it was on from there.
