Tony Schiavone & Tony Khan

Tony Khan Takes Shots At WWE President Nick Khan, Brings Up Rumors Of WWE Negotiating With NJPW (Video)

It’s Friday night, and this week, you know what that means …

All Elite Wrestling returns this evening on TNT with their special AEW Friday Night Dynamite “go-home” show for this Sunday night’s AEW Double Or Nothing 2021 pay-per-view at 10p/9c.

Ahead of the final stop on the road to Sunday’s DoN 2021 PPV, AEW President & CEO Tony Khan joins one of the voices of All Elite Wrestling, Tony Schiavone, for an official pre-Friday Night Dynamite special video that was released via the company’s various official digital and social media platforms.

In the video, which you can watch in its’ entirety via the tweet embedded below courtesy of the official AEW Twitter feed, Khan mentions reading in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that New Japan Pro Wrestling has engaged in talks with WWE President Nick Khan.

This led to the boss-man of AEW going on a bit of a sarcastic rant where he appears to be taking some shots at the top executive behind-the-scenes in WWE not named Vincent Kennedy McMahon.

“So you must’ve really gotten a lot done in the two months, Nick,” said the AEW President in the video after listing some of the crossover action AEW has had that has involved NJPW, and noting he has plans for the IWGP United States Championship, while bringing up the reports in the aforementioned pro wrestling publication that claims the WWE President has been in talks with NJPW. “In fact, I think there’s only room for one Khan in the wrestling business, Nick, and it’s me — Tony Khan.”

The AEW boss-man concluded, “It’s not some con-man from Connecticut. Have a fun show tonight, Nick. See you on Dynamite.”
