AEW President Tony Khan is very passionate about pro wrestling, and that is a known fact. Despite that, Khan sometimes ends up doing something that makes fans question him. Khan also explained his controversial tweet after Vince McMahon’s retirement.

Vince McMahon shocked the pro wrestling after announcing that he retired from WWE. Tony Khan decided to comment on the matter, as he said how proud he is to be the “longest-tenured CEO in Pro Wrestling.”

While speaking during the Ring of Honor Death Before Dishonor post-show media scrum, AEW President Tony Khan explained his controversial tweet.

“I was referencing that AEW Rampage was on and just the fact that of the big major companies, who I would consider ‘The big three,’ now I am the longest tenured [CEO] of course. I think if you consider pro wrestling, it’s a fair statement. I just thought it’s a factual statement, a note to promote Rampage but that’s all it was. I can’t say anything else about it.

Obviously hopefully got some eyeballs on Rampage and I really care about Rampage a lot. On a Friday, sometimes I will try to promote Rampage in fun ways.”

Vince McMahon retiring from WWE has already resulted in changes to the overall product. Regardless, Tony Khan will remain focused on his own product and try to improve AEW as well.
