• Tony Khan Takes A Shot At WWE Wanting To Have A Relationship With NJPW
As we noted before, WWE President & Chief Revenue Officer Nick Khan has been in talks with NJPW Officials for two months, regarding WWE becoming the official US partner of New Japan Pro Wrestling.
Prior to Friday’s special episode of AEW Dynamite, AEW President Tony Khan addressed this report and said the following:
“I just want to address, as ‘The Forbidden Door’, I read in the Observer today that New Japan Pro Wrestling has had talks with WWE’s President Nick Khan. Well, Nick, I have to say if you have been talking to New Japan Pro Wrestling for two months, you’ve gotten a lot done.
Just in the last two weeks I’ve had Yuji Nagata, Ren Narita and Rocky Romero on AEW, I’ve reunited Roppongi Vice, I’ve had the New Japan IWGP United States Champion Jon Moxley defend the Title successfully on our show, retaining it, and I have future plans for New Japan Pro Wrestling for the US Title.
So you must’ve really gotten a lot done in the two months, Nick, and in fact, I think there’s only room for one Khan in the wrestling business, Nick, and it’s me. It’s Tony Khan, it’s not some con-man from Connecticut.”
