AEW President Tony Khan has a lot of love when it comes to the world of professional wrestling. However, sometimes he takes it too far and that just ends up embarrassing him more than anything. In fact, he went on a profanity filled rant recently for some reason.
CM Punk became the AEW World Champion after defeating Adam Page at AEW Double Or Nothing. Prior to all this, CM Punk was called a financial flop by Eric Bischoff as well.
While speaking during the post AEW Double Or Nothing media scrum, Tony Khan defended CM Punk and while doing so, he went on a profanity filled rant about winning the Friday Night War, among many other things.
We just did a record pay-per-view buy, every pay-per-view, he’s done a four pay-per-view cycle now, every one of them was the record. Whether it was All Out, where he was huge part of the draw with Darby, his debut was a huge thing with the First Dance, the biggest Rampage draw in the history of that show.
The matches, he carried the Friday Night War, which, by the way, is a matter of record in f****** court in the state of California that we won the Friday Night War. Just ask Jerry McDevitt because he f****** wrote it. This guy won it, vs. Matt Sydal, who is a great wrestler, he had another goddamn great match on Friday night. This f***** guy, he f****** did the Friday Night War, he did the First Dance, he’s done the record Double or Nothing. He did the record All Out in his debut. He was a big part of the record Full Gear, a great match with Eddie Kingston. He’s wrestled a bunch of young guys and veterans in-between there. Will Hobbs, Daniel Garcia, then he showed up and did the biggest program in terms of everything, TV, box office, ever with MJF. Then he did the goddamn main event here. He’s the biggest part of financial success in the history of this company.”
For some reason, Tony Khan will simply not stop talking about the time AEW Rampage had a better demo rating than Friday Night Smackdown. Many fans feel that Tony Khan should be acting more like a president for a change, but that might not happen for a while by the looks of it.
