AEW President Tony Khan has faced criticism for relying on Cagematch ratings for booking decisions. Despite receiving input from others in the company, Khan remains committed to his vision, occasionally leading to last-minute creative choices.

During a recent media call, Khan defended his use of Cagematch ratings, emphasizing their significance in gauging fan feedback and show quality.

USA Network took a playful jab at Khan, referring to a World Heavyweight Championship match between Jinder Mahal and Seth Rollins on next week’s RAW and asking about the Cagematch rating for that specific bout.

Raj Giri tweeted:

“These guys do have history. Seth Rollins defeated Jinder Mahal in the tournament finals to become the first NXT Champion.”

USA Network replied:

“What was the cagematch rating?”

Tony fired back at USA Network with the following on X:

“A double standard:

@730hook 28-1 career record, on winning streak calls out the Champ, a logical challenge sparks online outrage

Jinder has literally lost every single match he’s in for the past year, immediately gets title shot, where is the rage


A moral victory for USA is one win more than their World Title challenger Jinder Mahal has in the past 364 days… because it’s been literally a full year since he won a match.

You really put AEW in our place getting Jinder Mahal in a big match on your tv show. Do it more often.”

Mahal tweeted the following after reading Tony’s tweet:

“Who tf is Hook?

Mahal deleted his tweet later.

An X user wrote the following:

“I don’t ever want to hear that all Tony Khan does is buy talent and doesn’t make stars.

Today he made a mega-star out of Jinder Mahal.

Booker of the Year.”

Top WWE star Randy Orton agreed that Tony did make a mega star out of Mahal and liked this tweet.
