Tony Khan’s relationship with WWE
During a recent interview, Tony Khan opened up about his relationship with WWE and its power couple, Triple H, and Stephanie McMahon. Khan claimed that he was friends with both of them before they joined pro-wrestling. However, he hasn’t spoken to either of them since he joined AEW in 2019.
Khan is the son of a Pakistani-American businessman, Shad Khan, who was a billionaire in the automotive parts business. He owns several sports teams including the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars and the English soccer club Fulham FC. He is also a big wrestling fan.
The relationship between WWE and AEW started much earlier than a joint PPV. The two companies had plans for a joint show in 2021, and AEW’s wrestlers had previously competed in New Japan. That’s why Khan was concerned that the two companies were going to work together.
Khan and MJF have not always had good relations. MJF expressed displeasure over his pay before the Double or Nothing match in May. Then, after beating Wardlow, he cut a bitter promo about Khan. He wasn’t seen again until All Out, but Khan has been positive about MJF’s return to the WWE.
Despite this dissatisfaction, MJF returned to television at All Out in January 2019. He was revealed to be the joker in a Casino Ladder match.
