Chris Jericho & Tony Khan Appear To Be Running Things Behind-The-Scenes In AEW

Backstage News On Tony Khan & Chris Jericho Having Large Influence Over Everything In AEW

The behind-the-scenes atmosphere and structure in All Elite Wrestling (AEW) is taking firm shape as the promotion settles into the New Year. reports that Tony Khan remains heavily involved in almost all aspects of AEW creative, taking on a similar role that Vince McMahon has with WWE and having the final say over everything that makes it on TV.

Specifically the Jon Moxley-Inner Circle recruitment angle was his idea and he received input from Chris Jericho on the “smaller details.”

Also said to be a brainchild of Khan is the storyline involving Kenny Omega and Adam Page and he has also been involved in trying to build up some younger stars, Jungle Boy and Scorpio Sky being two examples.

Kenny Omega, Cody and the Young Bucks are given a significant amount of creative control over their matches and segments as they are obviously in positions of trust with AEW seeing as how they are all EVPs.

They work hand-in-hand with Khan on creative, but the latter still has final say as noted earlier.

Chris Jericho is said to be “extremely engaged” in almost every storyline or segment he has been a part of while also being a big “locker room leader” to the younger talents, helping to guide them and provide insight. Social Media Interaction
