Shane McMahon Is “Always Welcome In AEW”

Shane McMahon WWE

Tony Khan has been discussing Shane McMahon.

During an episode of the Grilling JR podcast, Conrad Thompson revealed Shane McMahon had reached out to someone on the AEW roster about appearing for the company. While the seriousness of the conversation remained in question, it seemed McMahon was at least intrigued by the possibility.

Jim Ross had already said the idea of Shane McMahon in AEW is “so crazy it might work.”

Meanwhile, it’s been reported Shane McMahon is no longer under contract with WWE, and is, at least in theory, a free agent.

However, Tony Khan initially appeared to distance himself from the speculation, but it seems things might not be quite that clear cut.

Tony Khan Has “A Lot Of Respect” For Shane McMahon

Although the story appeared to be dead, it appears there might be half a chance McMahon could pop up in AEW. Speaking in a new interview with Sports Illustrated, Tony Khan was asked about McMahon and said he’s always welcome in All Elite Wrestling.

“I heard the rumor that he might be interested. I’ve never met Shane, but we have a lot of mutual friends. I have a lot of respect for him as an executive and a professional wrestler. Shane is always welcome in AEW.”

McMahon has remained away from the wrestling industry since tearing his quadriceps in an impromptu match against The Miz at WrestleMania 39.
