What does this mean for the future of "being the elite"? [1
Nick: "For now, it might be tough going weekly because we're not on the road every single day our lives, but we're still going to keep going. "
Matt:" It may become more of a documentary series too. I mean, that's our platform. That's the biggest thing, everybody watches it every week. It may be tough, but we'll get creative, we'll figure it out.
Nick: "I hope we can do it every week.
Matt: "The show is not going to go away, any time soon. "
Matt:" The big thing for all elite is to take care of the boys. So many times you hear stories about wrestlers from years past, or legends, that do not have anything left and there's nothing to show for it. We did not want to take care of the guys.
Now that you're in a position where you can name your venue, what is AEW in?
Nick: "That's a tough question. For me, we're LA guys, so there's something about the Staples Center that makes me very happy about the thought of even running something like that. I'm a huge Los Angeles Clippers fan. I'm a huge NBA fan.
Matt: "Yeah. With that being said, the LA Forum would be fun too. In my heart I've always wanted to wrestle in my home town, which is Rancho Cucamonga. There's no building in Rancho Cucamonga, there's a building in Ontario, I would love to do one there.
Nick: "We're not just going to do one big show "
Matt:" No, and it's up to me, this is going to be a branding fire, and we're going to take it to several buildings. "
