It seems there’s a deeper reason behind Tony Khan’s recent fervent social media attacks on Vince McMahon and WWE.
In a recent social media post, Khan reflects on a personal experience involving the Mayo Clinic, which saved his mother’s life one year ago. He expresses his gratitude to the organization for their life-saving work.
Moreover, Khan reveals that it was during this challenging time that some AEW talents approached him, alleging that WWE was attempting to interfere with their contracts and enticing them to leave AEW. Khan emphasizes that this particular episode remains etched in his memory, as it coincided with his mother’s near-fatal health crisis.
“This weekend marks 1 year since Mayo Clinic saved my mom’s life,” he wrote. “During her ordeal, many AEW talent came to me alleging WWE tampering, inducing them to break their contracts. I’ll never forget these phone calls at her side in the hospital; it’s when business became personal for me.”
He went on to say, “This is nothing new; I mentioned it last year after she came home. It’s relevant today because she checked in for surgery 1 year ago today. As I’ve mentioned several times since, Mayo Clinic are heroes, and thanks to them, her recovery from a very grim outlook has been a miracle.”
In another Twitter post, the AEW President addressed the “WWE avatar” accounts that routinely flood him with negative posts. Khan expressed his frustration, particularly given that these accounts are now targeting his mother’s recovery from a life-threatening experience. He expressed strong negative feelings towards these individuals, stating, “is why I straight hate these people to the bottom of my heart with all my soul.”
