All Elite Wrestling President Tony Khan took part in the post-AEW Full Gear 2020 media scrum and discussed several topics, including the criticism regarding the booking of the AEW Women’s Division.

“Serena Deeb, who is a full-time AEW wrestler and a really important part of our roster, is the NWA Women’s World Champion, so I mean there was definitely a relationship and there’s definitely a good chance you’re going to see the NWA Women’s Title defended here, but the AEW Women’s Title is still our top priority, we have a great Women’s Champion in Hikaru Shida, she’s defended the title against many top contenders and I think there’s still some good matches in front of her, but I thought the match she had tonight was excellent.

I understand what people are saying about the division, I should’ve probably done better to put some of Nyla’s story when she said that she wasn’t going to wrestle again and Vickie said that she was going to wrestle again until they got the title shot, I should’ve used that on Dynamite more. I watch AEW Dark very closely and work on Dark very closely and book Dark, so I’m obviously watching Dark, but I forget sometimes that there’s about half the audience watches Dark for us, typically. I probably should’ve put that on and then, to be honest, the time in the real world, Vickie was not able to come those weeks, not because she was sick, but because it was a conflict that she always had, so I gave her that time off and I probably should have made it clear, there’s a lot to putting the shows together.”
