• WWE Took A Shot At Tony Khan During Elimination Chamber 2023

On Friday’s episode of WWE SmackDown, Pro-Wrestling & MMA journalist Ariel Helwani appeared.

This was Helwani’s 1st LIVE appearance on a WWE TV show.

Ariel’s WWE appearance didn’t sit well with AEW President Tony Khan, who tweeted the following:

“You’re a fraud Ariel Helwani. You’re as legitimate of a reporter as Tony Schiavone.”

This led to Helwani replying:

“Thanks for watching, old friend! Can’t wait for our next chat.

(Also, don’t listen to the snowman, Schiavone. You’re a legend in my books.)”

Khan then ended this exchange with the following:

“Good luck with the unbiased journalism.”

For those who don’t know about the issues between Tony and Ariel, then here’s the story.

Tony once appeared on Ariel’s podcast. Despite being asked many interesting questions, Khan didn’t reveal any new information. Even Jim Cornette said the interview felt pointless.

Helwani then vented his frustrations and called it the worst sit-down interview he has ever done.

During the Elimination Chamber 2023 premium live event, Helwani was shown in attendance with UFC Hall Of Famer Georges St-Pierre.

When Michael Cole was introducing them to the WWE fans, he said the following about Helwani:

“The unbiased, world renowned combat sports journalist Ariel Helwani, who asks all the hard questions… whether you want to answer them or not.”

This was a direct shot at Tony Khan.
