Tony Khan is never one to shy away from interacting with fans on Twitter. The AEW boss loves to troll and has leveraged social media to hype up his many major announcements. When one fan recently attacked AEW’s television viewership numbers, Khan responded with a scalding reply.
Tony posted a graphic to promote this week’s episode of Dynamite. The fan said, “All of 800k people can’t wait.” TK then epically blasted the fan.
“That would still be 799,942 more people than the 58 who care about anything you do or say.”
Wrestling ratings have been down due to the NBA and NHL playoffs. All three products share the same target demographic. Ratings watchers are well aware that there will be fewer people viewing the weekly television shows.
This fan did not. Tony Khan put him in his place. AEW fans responded by lauding Khan for his burn.
AEW will likely see even more disappointing ratings for tonight’s Rampage. The show was moved to 5:30 to accommodate the NHL playoffs. It will be interesting to see if anyone tempts master troll Tony Khan this time.
