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.

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 to the “Ten Count Wrestling Podcast” by NBC Sports Boston, Cesaro stated that Tony Khan hugging him was strange but it was just two bros hugging.

”It’s so strange. … It was like, a quick hug … You know when you see your friend, and you give like, a high-five, and then a pat on the back kind of hug? … It was screen captured and then I guess people ran with it. Hey, it’s just two bros hugging, you know?”


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. We’ll have to see what’s next in store for Cesaro.
