AEW President Tony Khan is very passionate about pro wrestling, and no one can doubt that now. However, he tends to do some bizarre things from time to time that make fans question him. He was also trolled for an interesting reason recently.

The AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door event was a memorable night full of excellent matches and new champions being crowned. It also included Cesaro making his AEW debut, as he is now known as Claudio Castagnoli.

During the media scrum, Tony Khan ended up hugging Kazuchika Okada and Claudio Castagnoli as well. While speaking on Jim Cornette’s Drive Thru, Cornette trolled Tony Khan for looking like a Make-A-Wish kid while hugging them.

“He is holding onto people like he’s- one of them even said on Twitter like a Make-A-Wish kid gets to meet his hero when he’s hugging Claudio”


Tony Khan has been criticized for being too much like a fan and less like a President, but other people actually like that aspect about him. Regardless, he will do what he wants to and that’s unlikely to ever change.
