Tony Khan says DoN main event would not start until after NBA game seven

AEW CEO Tony Khan has a plan for the Double or Nothing PPV main event if the Boston Celtics vs. Miami Heat series goes to a game seven on Sunday night.

Khan appeared on the AEW Unrestricted podcast released on Thursday and spoke about what his plan is, should the PPV run head-to-head with the game.

“If it were to go to a game seven, we have a contingency plan because first of all, we’ll get started with the live pay-per-view broadcast probably just before that game would tip off but I don’t care if it goes long, even if it went to overtime, I’m planning ahead…I promise Hangman Page vs. CM Punk for the world championship, they’re not going to go to the ring until after game seven, if there is a game seven. So it leaves it open even for those diehard fans of those teams if there is a Heat-Celtics game seven, same as 10 years ago.”

Khan also said he is prepared for the pay-per-view to run longer than normal if there is a delay.

“We don’t have that same out on pay-per-view that we normally do, that same hard out at the same time. So, it’s interesting because if, for any reason, we do think it makes sense to add more action, we have that ability.”
