Kevin Owens recently resigned with WWE amid widespread belief he was leaving for AEW to be with his “Mount Rushmore” stablemates in 2022. That didn’t happen and now Owens is once again a WWE performer. It turns out that Tony Khan understood that decision.
AEW President Tony Khan is speaking up about the former WWE Universal Champion’s decision to stay with the company. “I would have been interested in that,” he told Shakiel Mahjouri of CBS Sports.
“He’s a great wrestler,” Khan said. “I think he ended up signing for what I believe is probably a lot of money. I think that’s great and good for him. We have a lot of people spotlighted here and he’s great.”
The AEW head honcho praised Owens for his wrestling ability and said that he would flourish wherever he goes in future. “Any company he goes to he’ll be a great wrestler for them,” he said,
Khan’s comments came days after news broke the news that Owens had opted to stay with WWE. It was previously revealed that WWE officials were highly impressed with Owens and wanted to retain him.
