AEW President Tony Khan, known for his wrestling passion, faced a recent Twitter controversy impacting his reputation. A week later, Samoa Joe expressed indifference, indicating he wasn’t bothered by the incident.

This all stemmed from a troll tweet from The USA Network account. This led to Tony Khan going to Twitter to defend his booking decisions and his company. He pointed out a “double standard,” drawing a comparison between Jinder Mahal’s win-loss record and the record of HOOK, the AEW World Champion contender.

“A double standard: @730hook 28-1 career record, on winning streak calls out the Champ, a logical challenge sparks online outrage Jinder has literally lost every single match he’s in for the past year, immediately gets title shot, where is the rage #AEWDynamite TOMORROW on TBS.“

Jinder Mahal delivered fitting response to Tony Khan, garnering substantial support online. Booker T also joined in supporting Jinder Mahal and criticized Tony Khan for his unusual rant.


While speaking with ESPN, AEW World Champion Samoa Joe was asked about Tony Khan’s Twitter rant from last week. The Samoan Submission Machine made it clear he was indifferent to the whole thing.

“That had nothing to do with me. I mean, that’s just really a cute little debate. I’m glad everybody’s chimed in on it.”

Tony Khan’s controversial Twitter behavior not only caused embarrassment among AEW talent but also drew criticism for letting tweets impact him during the social media outburst. While the exchanges were heated, some fans still hope that Khan would realize that engaging in such petty antics might harm his reputation without necessarily benefiting the company.
