• “It was a factual statement” – Tony Khan On His Comments About Vince McMahon’s Retirement
After Vince McMahon announced his retirement from WWE, AEW President Tony Khan tweeted the following:
“Thanks to you wrestling fans and your great support of AEW, I’m grateful to now be the longest-tenured CEO in pro wrestling.
Thank you very much to every single person who watches AEW on TV!
See you for Friday Night AEW Rampage on TNT at 10pm ET/9pm CT/10pm PT
During the post ROH Death Before Dishonor media scrum, Tony had the following to say about the tweet he posted:
“I was referencing AEW Rampage is on and just a fact. Of the big, major companies, of what I would consider The Big Three, I am the longest tenured.
(NJPW President Takami) Ohbari and now there is a new CEO there (in WWE). If you consider it pro wrestling, then I think it’s a fair statement.
I thought it was a factual statement, a note to promote Rampage, but that’s all it was. I can’t say anything else about it.
I hopefully, maybe got some eyeballs on Rampage and I really care about Rampage a lot.”
