AEW Executive Steps Back From Role

Tony Khan AEW

AEW is missing the executive who headed up its legal department according to a new report.

Tony Khan launched AEW in 2019 and famously named wrestling stars Kenny Omega, The Young Bucks, and Cody Rhodes as Executive Vice Presidents. Behind the scenes, however, Khan was relying on the Jacksonville Jaguars’ – also owned by the Khan family – Chief Legal Officer Megha Parekh to help launch the company.

Megha Parekh Steps Back From AEW Role

Fightful Select has now reported that AEW Chief Legal Officer Megha Parekh has stepped back from her duties in the company over the last few months. There is no confirmation if there has been an official change in role for Parekh but Chris Peck has largely taken over her duties.

Word within the company noted that Parekh was believed to be shifting her focus to a new stadium deal for the Jacksonville Jaguars. The report stresses that Parekh was not present at All In back in August in London and was not a part of the investigation that led to CM Punk’s firing from the company.

Parekh had reportedly been present in the locker room as CM Punk infamously fought with The Elite at All Out in 2022.
