• Rumor Killer On AEW President Tony Khan Being Offended After Being Called A “Money Mark” At Tony Schiavone’s Birthday Roast

During a recent edition of After 83 Weeks podcast, former WCW President Eric Bischoff revealed that AEW President Tony Khan got offended after being roasted during Tony Schiavone’s birthday roast.

Below is what Bischoff said:

“Right at the very beginning of this thing, everybody’s seated. Mark Madden opens up and he goes, ‘Hey, look over there! Tony Khan the money mark! How many executive vice presidents do you have in your company anyway?’

Evidently Tony took exception to that and got up and left. So I could have, I guess, had an opportunity to meet Tony Khan. But Mark Madden f***ed it up for me…and by me telling this story I probably just f***ed it up for myself, but whatever.”

Conrad Thompson then took to Twitter and revealed that Bischoff’s story is inaccurate. Below is what Conrad wrote:

“For the record, this isn’t accurate. Khan stopped by to celebrate Schiavone’s birthday before his dinner reservation downstairs with MJF, JR, Darby, Kip, Jeff Jones, Janela, Havoc, Excalibur, etc. He left after Hudson’s set not Madden’s. I can confirm: no hard feelings from Khan.

No disrespect to my pal @EBischoff as this was the talk of the evening until something more interesting happened downstairs. Of course I razzed @MarkMaddenX about “killing the town” but it was always in jest. No one is safe during a Roast and it was great fun for @tonyschiavone24″
