AEW President Tony Khan has been making weekly appearances on Impact Wrestling’s show on AXS TV during the “paid advertisement” segments with Tony Schiavone. It seems Khan’s segments have reminded John Cena Sr. of Vince McMahon’s own segments.
While speaking on the latest edition of Boston Wrestling MWF’s Wrestling Insiders, John Cena Sr. talked about Tony Khan’s segments on Impact Wrestling. He compared Khan’s character to how Vince McMahon has been portrayed as a character in WWE for so many years while praising McMahon’s ability to play his role to perfection.
It’s going to continue to grow. It’s on the way up. I don’t know if I’d get Tony Khan involved in it the way they’re getting him involved now, on camera appearances. It’s like a Vince McMahon thing but Vince had the character. Vince had the ability. It was great to see that guy and ratings went up while McMahon was on.
We will have to see what is next in store in the current partnership between AEW and Impact Wrestling.
