AEW has certainly come a long way since its inception back in 2019. The product has undergone many changes since then, but quite a few improvements can still be made.

AEW President Tony Khan is very passionate about pro wrestling and that is without question. However, Khan has the tendency of saying very odd things from time to time.

Khan recently insulted WWE for their crown jewel show. While speaking on his podcast, Freddie Prinze jr criticized Tony Khan for Insulting WWE.

Tony, you ain’t got to do that,” said Prinze, a former WWE creative writer. “You don’t have to dump on the Crown Jewel. Everyone on Earth knows it’s horses**t. Everyone on Earth knows it’s just a payday for WWE.


Tony, you are the man,” Prinze said. “You have your first million-dollar gate — Arthur Ashe Stadium, huge frigging show. I know you lost a couple wrestlers, but they were wrestlers that you weren’t doing anything with any way. You’re the man. Don’t trip on what WWE is doing right now, don’t take it personally.

You guys are competing in the same marketplace,” Prinze said. “It’s like two action movies opening on the same weekend. You don’t need to be insecure by these guys. You’re a young company. You’re growing exponentially. You’re growing quickly. And you’re starting to put on shows that people are respecting on both sides of the fence. Take confidence in that. Take confidence in the accomplishments and stop worrying about what they’re doing.

WWE Crown Jewel will be headlined by Roman Reigns defending his titles against Logan Paul on November 5th. We will have to wait and see how the event will turn out to be.
