• Tony Khan Takes Major Shots At Vince McMahon
During a recent interview with Entrepreneur.com, AEW President Tony Khan was asked about the difference between him and WWE CEO Vince McMahon.
Tony went on to take some major shots at Vince while giving his answer:
“There’s a lot of differences. I don’t do really cheap DQ finishes to prolong something. There are other wrestling programs where you might see multiple DQs and count-outs in a week. I believe in giving the fans a finish to the match.
I believe in not false-advertising programs and people. I might hype something I really believe in, but there’s a big difference between hyping something and false-advertising outright, and I’ve never done the latter. I think that’s why we have a lot of goodwill with the audience.
Following through on the things you say you’re going to do and trying to deliver a show that’s in the spirit of what the fans want to see week in, week out and offering fresh matches and fresh programs is a big part of it.
You know, not doing the same matches 17 weeks in a row over and over again.”
