Freddie Prinze Jr. Says Tony Khan Shouldn’t Trip On What WWE Is Doing Right Now

Former WWE creative team writer Freddie Prinze Jr. recently took to an episode of his “Wrestling with Freddie” podcast from iHeart Media’s My Cultra Network and talked about a number of topics, including how AEW President and CEO Tony Khan is the man and he should not trip on what WWE is doing right now. Freddie Prinze Jr. also said that he doesn’t need to be insecure by WWE as AEW is growing quickly and they are starting to put on shows that people are respecting so he should just take confidence in his accomplishments and stop worrying about what the WWE are doing.

Freddie Prinze Jr. said:

“Tony Khan, who runs, books, and pays for and does everything, he is the man at AEW, took a shot on The Crown Jewel. It turns out you and I aren’t the only ones that think it’s a silly Pay-per-view. But I felt like he got a lot of heat for it and we didn’t based on the way both parties described it. So this is for Tony. Tony sh*t all over it and said it’s just some BS and the only Crown Jewel is at Arthur Ashe, basically selling his stuff. Tony, you ain’t got to do that. You don’t have to dump on The Crown Jewel. Everyone on earth knows it’s horsesh*t. Everyone on earth knows it is just a payday for WWE.”

“He takes things very personally and he gets in his feelings, and he talks about feeling attacked and things like this. Tony, you are the man. You have your first million dollar gate, Arthur Ashe stadium, huge frigging show. I know you lost a couple wrestlers, but they were wrestlers that you weren’t doing anything with anyway. You’re the man. Don’t trip on what WWE is doing right now. Don’t take it personally. ‘Well, it’s personal man. They’re coming after my business.’ You’re going after their business too. You guys are competing in the same marketplace. It’s like two action movies opening on the same weekend. You don’t need to be insecure by these guys. You’re a young company. You’re growing exponentially. You’re growing quickly and you’re starting to put on shows that people are respecting on both sides of the fence. Take confidence in that. Take confidence in the accomplishments and stop worrying about what they’re doing.”
