Steve Austin returned to podcasting with today's episode of the Steve Austin Show, with AEW President Tony Khan.

The Texas Rattlesnake announces that the podcast format will be one "live" (new) episode on Tuesdays and a classic episode rebroadcast on Thursdays.

Moving on to the interview with Tony Khan, they discuss Double or Nothing, the performance of Dustin Rhodes and the importance of emotion, Tony's fandom of the Natural, details on Bret Hart appearing on the pay-per-view, going into the show doing a promotion with very little footage and more.

Khan discusses the importance of tag teams in AEW, revealing that not only will there be a Tag Team Tournament to crown the first-ever AEW male Tag Team Champions when they get weekly television in the fall on TNT, but also announced there will be Womens Tag Team Championships down the line.

Austin opens up about how the Stone Cold Podcast with the former Dean Ambrose, now Jon Moxley, really affected him. Austin discusses reconnecting with Moxley and saying everything is all good now.

Moxley has communicated with Austin and he will do a future episode of the Steve Austin Show.

Tony talks about where he sees their business model, saying that AEW will not have a traditional house show model. He states he doesn't want performers wearing themselves out six nights a week. Khan says he can't really do an off-season in the modern era, but you can give talent time to breathe. Tony says that they could do a few live events and supplement the lives of performers with international dates or other business opportunities from his media partners.

Steve Austin asks Khan If that model is sustainable and Khan believes that it is.

Stone Cold follows up by asking Tony about his father and their relationship. Tony goes into how his father is invested in AEW.

Khan talks about all the lessons he learned in production with Double or Nothing, Fyter and Fight for The Fallen.

Tony confirms that Fight for The Fallen, like Fytcr, will be free for on Bleacher Report Live in the US.

It's a really great interview.
After listening to this podcast, I decided to go to the Network to listen to the Stone Cold Podcast with Dean Ambrose. I have to ask, did WWE edit out the parts that Austin disliked? Because I must say that I did not sence any serious hostility from either man. At one point, my wife came home from work and starting talking to me, but that was only for like a minute. 

Even the part where Austin started talking about Dean resting on his laurels as WWE champion - that was at the very end of the broadcast, despite Austin stating that the interview started off on the wrong foot from the beginning. It just didn't seem as bad as Austin made it out to be when he was talking to Tony Khan. So does anyone know if it was edited, I didn't see any noticeable jump cuts.

I saw it when it first aired and remember it as you described. Austin always jumped into working mode at the end in these interviews, like he did with Lesnar, and that’s what it seemed like to me. I didn’t notice a whole lot else earlier, other than the fact that Ambrose is just a really weird guy not comfortable in that type of environment. I also recall Ambrose getting heat for saying the Lesnar match at WM sucked because Lesnar wasn’t willing to do anything.

First few minutes were awkward because of the childhood questions. Austin kind of kept asking while it seemed like Dean was avoiding talking too deep about it or saying something negative. He obviously wasn't comfortable for first 10 or so minutes of interview

He obviously wasn't comfortable for first 10 or so minutes of interviewI don't disagree with you, but it's kind of hard to tell because even when both Steve and Dean/Jon are out of character, they're both in character somewhat. And even though Dean seemed put off by Austin talking about his childhood, I really didn't think Austin was out of line in any way with his questioning. Which is why I asked if the show was edited. I don't think it was a storyline work or anything like that, I just don't see (unless there was editing) much where there would be heat between the two after watching this?

AEW files trademark for Wednesday Night Dynamite

https://www.pwinsider.com/article/127404/a-big-clue-as-to-when-aew-will-air-their-weekly-tv.html?p=1

Apparently AEW has decided to move their show to Wednesday night to avoid being preempted or being shuffled around due to NBA on TNT on Tuesday nights. The NBA does have games on Wednesday night's during the post season however.

During the NBA playoffs, ESPN and TNT split coverage on weekday nights. When one network has coverage, the other does not. There were instances of both having weekend coverage but scheduling is such that the timeslots never conflict with one in the afternoon and the other at night. It is theoretically possible for TNT to not have playoff games on Wednesdays. The other possibility is that if TNT has Wednesday playoff games, then AEW can air on a one off occasion on a night when ESPN has the NBA playoffs. TNT's main NBA regular season night is Thursday, but it has some odd Monday and Tuesday games either due to NCAA Basketball Tournament preemptions or to fulfill its minimum number of games since it isn't possible to air all on Thursdays. Wednesday and Friday are ESPN's NBA nights with the odd other night occasionally.

Stealing most of the attention from the good matches at FyterFest was the unprotected chair shot to the head that Cody took from Tye Dillinger last night. Cody needed stitches but supposedly passed the concussion impact test. Tony Khan insisted this was a “mistake” and not a planned spot, comparing it to “pilot error”, although both wrestlers were clearly involved in it. Although not nearly as bad as anything you saw in the ‘90s, this spot has gotten all sorts of negative attention and is really the last thing AEW needs. Dillinger can take the fall of course, but Cody being involved and apparently agreeing to take a head shot that Khan wasn’t aware of is something that could cause problems.
