In the world of professional wrestling, Tony Khan has established himself as a true pioneer. He has succeeded in making All Elite Wrestling, his promotion, a rival of WWE in the course of fewer than four years. Furthermore, he has also been a fan of the business since childhood and recently dropped names of some amazing WWE legends that he would have loved to hate growing up.
There were a few heels that Tony Khan couldn’t wait to see get their due when he was younger and just an avid wrestling fan. Khan spoke about it while appearing on “The K&C Masterpiece” on 105.3 FM.
“‘Ravishing’ Rick Rude and Bobby ‘The Brain’ Heenan, and Ric Flair at times when Ric Flair was wrestling Sting.”
Bobby ‘The Brain’ Heenan, who managed Ravishing Rick Rude, had a significant role in “The Ravishing One’s” 1989 WrestleMania V triumph over “The Ultimate Warrior” for the WWE Intercontinental Title. Furthermore, the legendary rivalry between Ric Flair and Sting included numerous world title contests, including their 1988 45-minute time-limit draw at NWA’s Clash of the Champions.
Nowadays, Sting has been a constant fixture on Tony Khan’s AEW programming. The Icon has been on the side of the rising face-painted superstar, Darby Allin, with the pair’s comradery being highly appreciated by the fans.
Tony Khan continued by commending Sting for his work with AEW. One of the best wrestlers in the world, according to him, was “The Icon.” The AEW CEO thinks Sting has definitely left his influence on the business, even if he established his history before joining AEW.
Therefore, Tony Khan is now looking to expand All Elite Wrestling to the next level. With significant changes already seen in terms of storylines and presentations, it seems like AEW is on a mission to thrive in a completely new manner in this new year.
