AEW’s young leader has been vocal and passionate about his desire to put on the best possible wrestling product for fans. As a fan himself who grew up in the internet wrestling community of the 1990’s, he’s got an interesting perspective on today’s wrestling Twitter.
Khan recently spoke to Robbie Fox on the My Mom’s Basement podcast. There, he revealed what he dislikes most about wrestling Twitter.
“The biggest thing is, somebody says something on wrestling Twitter that’s a lie or make a rumor up and then everybody takes it as fact as this one person made it up as truth. People run with it and there are a lot of things that have gotten traction. If you, you’re like, ‘that’s not true,’ but one person said it and you can almost track it back. There’s a lot of stuff that isn’t true. The flip side of it is, the wrestling side is, you have these people who tell these obvious things like I heard the other day Bruce [Prichard] was saying he had never heard of Kenny Omega in 2019. Then literally, they played a clip from 2018 and Bruce is talking very intricately about Kenny. So it’s like, give me a break, man,”
Khan is referring to a remark made by Bruce Pritchard on his Something to Wrestle podcast. Pritchard claimed he had never heard of Kenny Omega until the 2019 Starrcast convention.
Khan and Fox also discussed the upcoming Friday night battle between WWE SmackDown and AEW’s Buy-In and Rampage shows.
