Tony Khan showed up on Impact Wrestling to take part in a Summit. Don Callis mediated the segment between Khan and Scott D’Amore. This segment ended up revealing some big pieces of information. Kenny Omega vs Moose will take place at Daily’s Place, and Sami Callihan will face the winner at Slammiversary. The segment was not a winner for everyone.
During a recent Reffin Rant, Jimmy Korderas addressed the Summit segment on Impact Wrestling. He said that Don Callis made it entertaining because he’s so good at playing an A-hole. Then Korderas said, speaking as someone who personally knows Callis, that he can be an A-hole in real life.
The attention was then directed to Tony Khan, and Korderas was a bit more critical. He stated that Khan has been professional in past interviews, but it seems like there is too much playing going on when he’s playing an authority figure on television.
“Tony Khan, I’ve heard him in interviews. I’ve heard him being confident and sounding like an owner and I want the company to do well, but last night on Impact he sounded like someone playing the part of an authority figure. I think he needs to work on finding himself and not playing a role.”
Tony Khan hasn’t really been an authority figure on AEW Dynamite yet. He did step out on AEW Dark and cut a promo on Kenny Omega, one that Jim Cornette absolutely panned.
Cornette had much worse things to say about Tony Khan’s promo work than Korderas. He said that Khan came off like “a fan got the opportunity to do what he had always dreamed of doing on national television and he freaked out and he was having a nervous breakdown trying to do it. That is what it looked like.”
We also can’t forget about Tony Khan’s recent promo on WWE President Nick Khan about that NJPW deal. Jim Cornette roasted Khan for that one, too.
