Tony Khan & Rich Eisen discuss idea of Rich getting in the ring for AEW

Both Tony Khan and Rich Eisen are game for it. Tony states that AEW will get him in the ring

Both Rich and Tony are game. 

The January 11th episode of AEW Dynamite emanated from The Kia Forum in Inglewood, California. On the lead up to the show, AEW President Tony Khan stopped past The Rich Eisen Show

As Khan and Eisen were conversing, Tony mentioned that he’s going to get Rich in the ring for AEW one day. Eisen immediately stated that he’d be up for it. After some back and forth banter, Khan said they’ll get him which would include Rich’s charity being involved as well. 

Khan: Rich, I’m gonna get you in the ring one of these days. 

Eisen: Um, sure. What do you want me to do? 

Khan: I mean, you’re running the [NFL] Combine so I’ve seen what kind of athlete you are so I think you could easily run the ropes, and I think we could teach you and it’s a very difficult thing but I think it would make great content and wrestling has great engagement, AEW has millions of fans. 

Eisen: Oh, you don’t need to sell me on that. I would be all in on it. 

Khan: We’ll get you. 

Eisen: And maybe we can fold the charity [Run Rich Run] into it or something like that. 

Khan: That would be great. I would love that and we can tie it in. I mean, and Run Rich Run, that’s once a year so we can space it out, that way you’d only have to work out twice a year (he laughed). 

Eisen worked as an anchor for SportsCenter and has been with the NFL Network for 20 years.

Tony Khan is the Chief Football Strategy Officer for the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars, who are scheduled to play the Los Angeles Chargers in Wild Card game on 1/14.
