Dana White is known to be a very controversial figure when it comes to the proper payment of UFC stars. He was called out for this fact many times by the likes of Jake Paul. However, it cannot be dismissed that Dana White has made UFC what it is today as it remains the most popular promotion for MMA in the world right now. The world of MMA has certainly grown exponentially since its humble beginnings a couple of decades ago.
AEW took the world by storm back in 2019 as it was the first pro wrestling company in a very long time that made waves in the pro wrestling world as a form of competition for WWE. It was certainly a risky endeavor as well because there was always the chance it was going to end up being a huge failure.
It is undeniable that AEW has become one of the most talked-about companies in the pro wrestling world thanks to CM Punk’s AEW debut as well as Bryan Danielson and Adam Cole.
While speaking to Robbie Fox on My Mom’s Basement, Dana White stated that he has not heard of Dan Lambert’s involvement in AEW but then wished Shahid and Tony Khan all the success in the world.
“I didn’t know(about Lambert on AEW), but I’m very close to the owners [Shad & Tony Khan] of that organization. They are awesome people. [Tony] and his dad are very good people and I wish them all the success in the world. Good for them,
AEW will continue to better its product and become one of the most highly discussed pro wrestling companies in the world and that is unlikely to change anytime soon from the looks of it.
