AEW’s inception came about in 2019 and since then, the company worked hard to provide an alternate product to what fans see in WWE. Over the course of 3 years, there have been a lot of ups and downs for the company as well. Tony Khan made a very interesting claim recently.

AEW has made some remarkable strides, and they’ve racked up impressive numbers and passionate fans. In spite of that, AEW also has its fair share of haters.

Heat on AEW also includes a lot of hate from people online. AEW President Tony Khan took to Twitter and claimed that a lot of AEW haters online are paid trolls and bots, seemingly insinuating that WWE has something to do with it.

An independent study has confirmed that much of the staunch anti-AEW online community aren’t real individuals, it’s a staff running thousands of accounts + an army of bots to signal boost them. Look closely, these aren’t real people. Who’d pay for such a *wildly* expensive thing?


It is not known whether this independent study has any merit or not, as it is certainly a very interesting claim made by Tony Khan. We’ll have to see what’s next in this situation, but let’s hope he releases the full report from that “independent study.”
