Nyla Rose Talks The Diversity Behind The Camera In AEW, Says Tony Khan Puts Talent “Above All Else”

AEW star and former women’s champion Nyla Rose recently appeared on the DCW 50 program to discuss a wide range of topics, including her thoughts on President Tony Khan, and how diverse AEW is behind the cameras. Highlights from the interview are below.

How Tony Khan is a minority himself

I genuinely believe Tony [Khan] just puts talent above all else. You know, and talent comes [in] many forms, many faces, from everywhere. But I do [believe Tony was thinking about diversity when shaping AEW] because Tony himself, being a minority, being brown skin, owns a professional wrestling company. Thats unheard of. That has never happened.

How there’s a lot of diversity behind the camera that gets overlooked in AEW:

So for all this talk about the diversity in front of the camera, theres so much diversity behind the camera that I feel often goes overlooked and its an incredible feeling. The company through and through is just every color of the rainbow. I do believe its not a matter of checking boxes for Tony but its a matter of giving those opportunities because he knows what its like, hes been there.
