During the post-show media scrum for AEW Dynasty, CEO Tony Khan commented on the absences of MJF, Kenny Omega and Britt Baker from AEW. Here are highlights:

On the status of MJF: “MJF, one of the biggest stars in AEW, we haven’t seen him in recent months. I would love to get MJF back here soon. Sooner than later, like really soon. We have so many great things happening and I think that would be really added. He’s one of our great wrestlers and we’ve had great things happening in AEW lately. A lot of great milestones in the last couple of months. To go from Revolution, one of the best shows top to bottom, great matches and to hit the button of Sting’s retirement, maybe one of the greatest sendoffs ever…and then have Jon Moxley win the IWGP World Championship, coming to Jacksonville this week to defend it against Powerhouse Hobbs…and then have Dynasty be such a huge home run. Everything is going great for AEW right now, that would be something that would add a lot. That’d be awesome to have MJF back, and soon, I would love that.”

On Kenny Omega and Britt Baker: “I look forward to seeing both of them as soon as we possibly can. I think both of them have been recuperating from totally different things. Both great, former world champions for AEW and hopefully we can see them both soon. Going to Winnipeg, it would be great, even if he can’t return, to see Kenny Omega, that would be pretty awesome for the fans up there. That’s still something, I’m optimistic, hopefully we could do. For Dr. Britt Baker, the sooner she’s back, the better, she’s a great world champion for us and a great representative of AEW. We’ve missed her. That would be tremendous. We saw Adam Cole back tonight and hopefully we’ll see Dr. Britt Baker back sometime soon too. We miss Kenny Omega. I’ve talked to him a few times this week. He’s one of our greatest champions and greatest stars ever. He’s been here from the beginning. We definitely miss him.”
