Tony Khan calls out Randy Orton for using AEW to get leverage and N-word usage

As reported earlier, 13-time World Champion Randy Orton and AEW CEO Tony Khan went on a war of words on Twitter. After Khan took shots at WWE’s Saudi Arabia plane fiasco, Orton stepped in and took shots at Shahid Khan’s corruption accusations.

However, Orton’s tweet was met with a furious response from Khan who was quick to accuse Orton of using his company’s name in order to get leverage from WWE. After defending his father, he also brought up Orton’s usage of the “N-word” on a Twitch Stream.

The tension’s rising quickly with this Twitter feud and it has everyone’s attention.

    This really not a good look for AEW. I mean it looks like to me AEW will now have a hard time getting any WWE guys going over to AEW. On top of this AEW not going to have many WWE fans taking a look seeing what they got.

  • Okay first off it was lotion and baby oil and secondly why are you even bringing up assumptions about vince McMahon. This is a “feud” involving Tony Khan and Randy Orton?

  • Keith Learmonth

    I agree. So why not bring those things up?

    Why bring up “He said the N-Word once”, when you could bring those up?

    1. If you think Vince hasn’t been involved in some EXTREMELY shady stuff over the decades, you’re dreaming.

    2. Randy is the guy who literally s*** in someone’s purse while working for WWE years ago.

    So, hang on… for months, people in AEW have been going “Yeah, we hope people in WWE are using AEW to get better contracts!”, but now that tony thinks someone actually did that, he’s going to use it as fodder for an online argument?

  • Keith Learmonth

    To be fair, though, I don’t think “Used the N-Word once” is anywhere near as bad as “Could be complicit in international corruption”

    If you look up Randy Orton’s past, you’d know he doesn’t want to have a number of things brought back up about himself. He needs to sit this one out.
