Last week on AEW Dynamite, Tony Khan fell victim to an attack by The Elite, resulting in him wearing a neck brace during the NFL Draft and in subsequent public appearances. In fact, even Jim Ross commended Khan for keeping it old school with his actions.

Tony Khan wore a neck brace and maintained kayfabe when asked about his condition following the storyline attack by The Elite on AEW Dynamite. As part of the ongoing angle, Khan is not medically cleared to travel due to his injury, resulting in The Young Bucks taking over running the show until his return.

While speaking on the Grilling JR podcast, Jim Ross discussed the recent events on AEW Dynamite involving Tony Khan and praised him for maintaining kayfabe during the NFL Draft. Ross mentioned that he was surprised by the storyline development and impressed that Khan continued to sell the injury by wearing a neck brace in public.

“I was waiting to see if Tony was gonna follow through and complete the cycle by wearing a neckbrace and he did. I was proud of him for doing that because it was old school. Now whether you like the angle or you didn’t like the angle, that’s another issue but him following through and wearing the neckbrace…good for Tony Khan on that deal. That was old school like thinking and I’m really glad that he wore the neckbrace.”


The Elite destroyed Kenny Omega on AEW Dynamite this week and it is clear The Elite will be running roughshod over the company for the time being, so we’ll have to see when Tony Khan will return on AEW television.
