Tony Khan Apparently Banned AEW Wrestlers From Watching Cody Rhodes’ Return At WWE Royal Rumble

— Former WCW wrestler Konnan recently spoke about Tony Khan, calling out two incidents that highlighted Khan’s losing his cool on topics related to WWE. Konnan, who works for AAA in multiple roles include booking, shared a story where he had FTR drop the titles to Dragon Lee and Dralistico, just before Lee signed with WWE.

“When FTR was working with us, I gave the Tag Team titles to Dragon Lee and his brother Dralistico. The next day, Dragon Lee signed with WWE. He hadn’t signed yet, the next day he signed. Well, Tony went nuts, and I had to fly over there. He went off and was like, ‘Yeah, yeah, why are you doing this? I can’t believe you did this. You stabbed me in the back, and you should have told me before.’ So I said, ‘Basically what you’re trying to tell me is you don’t want me to work with WWE again?’ He goes, ‘No no no no no, I didn’t say that. I have two witnesses saying I didn’t say that.'”

“But bro, he had given out that day the order that if he found out that anybody was watching Cody at the Royal Rumble when he returned and won, he basically gave an edict: ‘I better not find anybody watching that show.'”
