AEW head Tony Khan continued to pound the drum with multiple media outlets that Wednesday's Dynamite from Atlantic City, New Jersey, will be special for several reasons.
Speaking to both PWInsider and Busted Open Radio in separate interviews, Khan talked about tonight's surprise new signing that will debut against Isiah Kassidy in the Face of the Revolution qualifying match and the show in general.
"I am going to try to satisfy a lot of fans tonight. I had a lot of thoughts over the weekend on what that means. I pivoted some plans in the last few days in a good way to make tonight's show even better," he told Busted Open.
Khan told PWInsider that he thinks the signing is a "major" one for them and that he hopes people's expectations will be met, also saying that even if the person isn't one of the guesses fans have, that doesn't change the possibility of them showing up in AEW in the future.
He said that while there are a lot of fun things planned for Wednesday already, there is more that they haven't announced, some of which will come today and into the evening.
"...There's also going to be some other really exciting things on the show that have not been announced yet," he told PWInsider.
Khan was non-committal to PWInsider on whether there will be more than one debut tonight.
"I don't want to get too specific to say exactly what's going to happen, but it's going to be a great night for the fans. I promise there's definitely one surprise, and I think there'll be some other really fun stuff along the way too," he said.
Part of Khan's approach is listening to the fans which is driving some of what they will see Wednesday.
"I really do value the feedback from the fans and what they have to say. That's part of the reason I am going to do a lot of things we're going to do on tonight's show. It's because I listen to the fans and their voice and what they want to see. There's a lot to look forward to on this show," he said to Busted Open.
Here's everything announced thus far for the show:
- AEW World Champion Hangman Page vs. Lance Archer Texas Death Match for the title
- MJF appearance
- Face of the Revolution qualifying match: Isiah Kassidy vs. "a top wrestler" debuting
