Tony Khan has been praised for his attitude and welcoming nature by former WWE Champion Rob Van Dam.
RVD has recently started working for AEW as part of a storyline involving the FTW Championship and Hook, son of Van Dam’s former ECW colleague Taz.
Van Dam made his AEW debut against Jack Perry after Perry had insulted Jerry Lynn. Last month RVD and Hook teamed to defeat Matt Menard and Angelo Parker.
After being asked his opinion of Tony Khan, Van Dam stated how “appreciative” his current boss is of all the AEW locker room.
“Vince McMahon is intimidating. I think a lot of people feel like he’s a very powerful figure. When you’re talking to him, you know that. His energy … reeks of power and of importance, and I’ve always felt that way about Vince.”
“I feel like I have a ton of respect for Eric, but I feel like I’m talking to one of the boys when I’m talking to Eric.”
“Tony is extremely humble. Very, very kind. Very complimentary, and does not have the energy that he’s more important than anybody else. He seems more like he’s happy to be there and appreciative, you know?”
