AEW CEO Tony Khan Comments On His Use Of Social Media To Take Shots At WWE

— AEW CEO Tony Khan has never been one to shy away from voicing his opinion on social media whether to promote his shows, talk about television ratings, bicker with other wrestling personalities or take shots at WWE. Earlier today, Khan dropped in on The Rocker Morning Show where he spoke of his affinity for using social media and was asked if is a positive or negative and to compare it to WWE and WCW taking shots at each other back in the 1990s.

“In the 90s, certainly, I do think a lot of that helped fuel the wrestling economy but it was a very different time and things weren’t all online, everybody wasn’t online all the time. It was a very different time for wrestling and a different time to be a sports fan, I think. And it’s changed for sports but you know, I think that those rivalries and those debates in sports are pretty healthy and I think for wrestling too, for better or for worse, it’s a big part of wrestling fandom now. It definitely is a way that people keep up on the shows and watch the shows and for me, I’m a big, big fan of that. I love promoting the shows online and I know that our wrestlers are really engaged socially and it makes for healthy competition, I think.”
