AEW President Tony Khan, who has been at the helm of the company’s booking, has faced mixed reactions from the wrestling community. Recently, this controversy took a dramatic turn when a fan reported AEW to the FBI, accusing the company of inciting doxing.

Tribalism within professional wrestling has been rampant, especially in recent years. The toxicity reached a point where Twitter user Technibility claimed to be a victim and reported AEW over alleged incitement of doxing by its fans.

Technibility took to social media to announce that he had filed a complaint with the FBI. He claimed that AEW, under Tony Khan’s ownership, had encouraged its fan base to engage in doxing, exposing private information and data of individuals. He further alleged that this behavior went unchecked by the company. The user detailed his complaint, stating:

”Re: Complaint against All Elite Wrestling, LLC


I am one of many individuals and victims of internet doxing, encouraged by All Elite Wrestling, LLC, owned by Tony Khan, their employees, their consumers, and subsidiaries.

There will be evidence provided to showcase that All Elite Wrestling, LLC at large has promoted their consumer base to act in such a manner that exposes people’s private information, photos, and other data to be used against them, with no denouncement of egregious behavior, accountability, or any action by All Elite Wrestling, LLC or its counterparts to denounce said unethical activity and business practices.

Along with the data and proof I will provide, there will be a multitude of examples of intentional targeted harassment, data leaks, slander, libel, and other instances of abuse that can potentially lead to a class-action lawsuit against All Elite Wrestling, LLC, along with subsidiary organizations and internet publications who have encouraged this behavior, as well as lower-level social media users (who will be named) that have been tasked with encouraging doxing of anyone with dissenting opinions on various social media platforms against All Elite Wrestling, LLC

Despite the serious allegations, Technibility eventually deleted his Twitter account after filing the complaint. It is likely that Tony Khan will not address these claims publicly.

The situation underscores the extreme levels of toxicity and tribalism present in the world of professional wrestling fandom today. Whether this will have any legal ramifications for AEW remains to be seen, but it highlights a concerning trend within the community.
