Interesting Name Considered Tony Khan’s “Right-Hand Man”

Tony Khan

Amongst all the chaos happening in AEW, a new report has suggested a surprising name is now considered Tony Khan’s “right-hand man” in the company.

It’s safe to say that all hell broke loose in AEW after All Out in Chicago as CM Punk aimed verbal barbs at the likes of The Elite, Hangman Adam Page, MJF, and Colt Cabana during the post-show press conference.

Following that reports have claimed that Punk was confronted by The Young Bucks which led to punches being thrown at Matt Jackson, while Punk’s friend and AEW producer Ace Steel is alleged to have thrown a chair that hit Nick Jackson in the head and bit Kenny Omega.

While there are rumours of suspensions swirling, the outcome of the situation is currently unknown and in the hands of AEW President Tony Khan.

Steven Muehlhausen of DAZN reported on social media that Tony Khan might have a good sounding board as he wades through the controversy with former WCW announcer Tony Schiavone considered Khan’s right-hand man:
“Sources: Not formally an update but news on Tony Khan. Hes really leaned on Tony Schiavone and been told hes now Khan’s “right-hand man”. Schiavone knows all about chaos when he was in WCW and should be a great person to lean on and be a sounding board on Punk/Elite altercation”
Some might find Tony Khan’s choice of “right-hand man” interesting as Jim Ross is also part of the company and he has extensive experience in talent relations as he headed up WWE’s talent department for many years helping put together the roster that included Steve Austin, The Rock, Mick Foley, Kurt Angle, Triple H, and many, many more.
