AEW has plenty of creative people in the company, but there is nobody Tony Khan loves to work with more than Jon Moxley. This is something he made very clear on the Oral Sessions podcast.
While speaking to Renee Paquette, her husband Jon Moxley came up in the conversation. Khan revealed that he loves collaborating with Moxley more than anyone else on the AEW roster. He has “the best ideas” when they have a three-way call situation as well.
Tony Khan also revealed that he would talk to Jon Moxley for almost an hour on his own before patching in Brodie Lee. Then the conversation would continue even longer as they all talked pro wrestling.
“I love collaborating with people but there’s nobody I love collaborating with more than him [Jon Moxley]. He’s my favorite person to work with. He has the best ideas and you know about our three-way calls and I love doing our three-way calls with — and I was telling Amanda [Huber] this story because we did it with Brodie, because the pandemic, you can’t do all the face-to-face meetings you’ve done in the past so we planned so much stuff with Brodie on a three-way call. Like Jon and I talked for probably 45 minutes and then we patched Brodie in and we talked for another 45 minutes. It’s a great process and I love talking wrestling with Jon, I love talking ideas with Jon but I learn so much every time I talk to him. Not always just about wrestling either. So much about so many different things.”
Tony Khan is living out his childhood dream as President of AEW. He was once booking matches in his room that nobody would ever see. Now he is devising cards that the whole world will have access to. It is quite a journey, and Tony Khan is obviously very happy to have Jon Moxley along for the ride.
