In other news revolving Tony Khan, the AEW Chairman compared the now recently-ended Wednesday Night Wars between AEW Dynamite and WWE NXT to the Monday Night Wars between WCW’s Monday Nitro and WWE’s Monday Night Raw. Khan recently made the following remarks while speaking with Alfred Konuwa of Forbes. Tony Khan revealed that he attended this surprising WWE NXT show.

“I think it’s—like sports fans—it’s a healthy thing,” Khan said. “I think there was maybe more of this [online bickering] during the Monday Night Wars on the internet than people might have realized. As I got older, I went through phases. From probably Age 12 through Age 15, most of my life was online, and most of my time spent was spent on wrestling online… so it was a lot like this, actually.

Khan continued: “There were people that were very strong on one side or the other, and there were some people who were really 100% one way or the other, 90% one way or the other, 80%, whatever. And you leaned one way or another. I think there were a lot of people like that on the internet, but there just were way less people on the internet. When I was a kid it was pretty much firing back and forth, very similar.” Vince McMahon recently received this big offer from Tony Khan.
