Tony Khan has said a lot of interesting things during his time in the pro wrestling spotlight. Plenty of stories have emerged about TK, even ones that we really shouldn’t share. That didn’t stop Ariel Helwani from dropping a very obvious reference to some of those alleged open secrets in AEW while clapping back on Twitter.
After Ariel Helwani appeared on SmackDown in Montreal this week, Tony Khan jumped on Twitter, and he unleashed a bit of fury. He called Helwani a fraud, and that caused a lot of attention.
Ariel Helwani then fired back at Tony Khan as he made reference to the AEW President as a ‘snowman. As everyone knows, this was a blatant shot at Tony Khan’s alleged affinity of white powder.
Thanks for watching, old friend! Can’t wait for our next chat.
(Also, don’t listen to the snowman, Schiavone. You’re a legend in my books.)
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer brought up this story. He also made it clear that Ariel Helwani got some massive points with WWE over that comment.
Then he comes back with that ‘snowman’ comment, and I can just imagine all the brownie points that won him in WWE, and now that’s pretty bad. That’s really, pretty bad. In the Twitter world, you are over for the best insult. How do you come back with that one?
Michael Cole referred to Ariel Helwani as a “non-biased world-class reporter” for a reason. Obviously, they got a kick out of his comeback at Tony Khan.
Only time will tell what is next in this story, but Tony Khan didn’t have anything to say about Ariel Helwani dropped that snowman reference.
