• “Worry about your company instead of running your mouth about WWE” – Booker T To Tony Khan
Things haven’t been good backstage in AEW as of late. A fight broke out backstage at the All Out 2022 PPV, which led to the suspension of CM Punk, Kenny Omega & The Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Jackson).
Despite all of this, AEW President Tony Khan decided to do what he always does – bring up WWE during his interviews.
While promoting tonight’s AEW Dynamite: Grand Slam, Khan took a shot at WWE’s Crown Jewel premium live event, which is an annual event in Saudi Arabia.
Below is what Tony said:
“We’re running a lot of great shows around the Northeast. It’s so many great wrestling markets in one geographic region.
I’ll say it’s the crown jewel of wrestling markets…the real crown jewel of wrestling markets, not some BS overseas in Saudi Arabia. The real crown jewel, New York City, is where you want to be.
Just New York City alone is a great market. It’s surrounded by so many great markets that are within driving distance. There are so many great fans up here.”
2-Time WWE Hall Of Famer Booker T gave the following advice to Khan on his podcast:
“Worry about your company. Worry about the turmoil that’s going on inside of AEW right now, and try to fix that before you start thinking about what WWE is doing and instead of running your mouth about WWE.
I have a lot of respect for Tony Khan. Sometimes you earn respect, as well. You don’t earn it by going out there talking; you earn it by going out there and doing it.
I think I would have a whole lot more respect for Tony Khan if he handled his business, and we all know what that is…we saw the press conference.
As I said, I don’t get it. There’s a lot of upside about AEW. Just like Chris Jericho was talking at that press conference, some things are better kept to ourselves. Instead of blowing up WWE, especially with how WWE is rolling right now.”
