AEW President Tony Khan made an appearance on the WINCLY podcast where he discussed a wide range of topics including the cool announcement made earlier this week about AEW using the Bash at the Beach trademark for an upcoming episode of AEW Dynamite. 

In this interview, Khan noted how it was AEW executive Cody Rhodes who was able to secure the trademark among other trademarks.

“Cody went on a trademark binge one night and he texted me, ‘Conrad and I were up all night trademarking stuff.’ One of the things that came out of it was Bash at the Beach. So, when he said that we thought of a way to use it… and the unique idea was to go to Miami in January,” said Khan.

AEW will air the January 15th episode of AEW Dynamite live on TNT with a special Bash At The Beach theme from Miami, Florida at the Watsco Center at the University of Miami.

As part of the nine-day experience for superfans, AEW will tape the Tuesday, January 21st episode onboard the Jericho Cruise and the show will air the following night, January 22nd on TNT. 

Khan mentioned how the promotion was able to get the trademark, which was the original rights to the trademark had lapsed. He brought up how MLW did the same thing with the WarGames trademark before they sold it back to WWE. 

Khan added that Daytona Beach is a great market for AEW and he looks forward to getting down there soon.
