Tony Khan and Eric Bischoff don’t see eye-to-eye. Bischoff has not been shy at all about telling people exactly when he lost respect for TK. Now, the two are going at it online.
We previously reported that Tony Khan went off about the USA Network posting dig at his proclivity to use Cagematch ratings as a metric in judging his own company’s performance. It was also reported that Eric Bischoff stated AEW can’t really judge success by any metric.
Eric Bischoff noticed Tony Khan’s post about double standards in pro wrestling and responded with a clown emoji. A number of people had fun with Tony Khan’s reply, especially where Easy E called him a clown.
In return, Tony Khan, not holding back on his Twitter commentary, replied directly to Eric Bischoff. Rather than using words, Khan shared a meme with the caption, “Get out of my sight, you miserable has-been,” clearly taking a dig at Bischoff’s current position in the pro wrestling industry.
Eric Bischoff couldn’t let that reply from Tony Khan win. He had a response in the chamber, and all ready to go.
*Groundbreaking miserable has-been.
Eric Bischoff used a screenshot from AEW Dynamite, one where Tony Khan decided to call him “groundbreaking.”
We will have to see what is next for AEW. Tony Khan replying like this certainly doesn’t give them the best look. Then again, tribalism in pro wrestling is rampant these days.
At times like this, we have to wonder if Bryan Danielson is going to jump in and issue Tony Khan a fine. One could argue that TK needs one right about now.
