Ever since All Elite Wrestling formally launched in early 2019, many have pondered when AEW would embark on the company's first UK tour. And if Tony Khan gets his way, we could well see an AEW event take place from Fulham's Craven Cottage home on the bank of the River Thames.

Speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Khan enthused how he not only wants to bring AEW to the UK, but that he wants to house a show at the legendary home of the Fulham football club that is owned by Tony's father Shahid Khan.

"I do want to come to England. It's a huge part of my life. It's a great thing we have with ITV. It's been amazing for us. We have great wrestlers from the UK, male and female. I can't announce exact dates, but I want to bring AEW to Craven Cottage."

Shahid Khan purchased Fulham from Mohamed Al-Fayed in July 2013, with Tony Khan initially getting involved with the club in 2015. By February 2017, Tony was named as Vice Chairman and Director of Football Operations, in addition to also serving as General Manager and Sporting Director.

As for Craven Cottage, that has been the home of Fulham dating back to 1896. These days, the capacity of the ground is 19,359 for football matches, although one would imagine that a larger crowd could be assembled for a wrestling event - with the main pitch area obviously offering up plentiful potential for more seats.

While no UK tour or even a one-off show has been announced yet, it's certainly clear that AEW is planning to head to the UK sooner rather than later.
