With AEW creating buzz as a big wrestling company around the industry, it’s natural that people are already comparing the promotion to WWE.
Though this is not the only comparison, and with Tony Khan being the president of the whole thing, it’s not a surprise that he is asked about Vince McMahon.
During his recent appearance on Talk Is Jericho podcast, Khan talked about Mr McMahon. He called the Boss one of his all time idols and implied that they are not at war with the company:
“Vince McMahon is one of my all time idols in terms of building a brand and sustaining a great company, and some of the greatest matches and stories have been in the World Wrestling Federation and Worldwide Wrestling Federation. So yeah, I’m a lifelong fan of their product, so it’s crazy to think that [Khan is the Vince McMahon of AEW]. I don’t think that is the case [that AEW and WWE are at war].”
Apart from this Tony Khan also discussed AEW’s TV Programming claiming that it will be in par and even better in some aspects from the shows that are currently out there.
