Tony Khan Explains How He Balances Life Between AEW And Other Sports Jobs

Tony Khan

Tony Khan is a very busy man that is more than just a guy that runs AEW because he has other jobs in the world of sports too.

In 2019, Tony Khan announced that he was starting All Elite Wrestling thanks to the support of his father Shahid Khan, who is a billionaire that has also owned the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars for 11 years. The Khan Family also owns the Fulham Football Club, which is a soccer team in England’s Premier League.

During a recent appearance on The Rich Eisen Show, Tony Khan explained how he finds the time to balance his work with AEW, the Jaguars and Fulham.

“I started out, and I would be in the football office 80 hours a week. Now, because originally when I started working at Fulham, I started outsourcing some of my work that I would do as far as the analytics on the weekly opponent, or the team, to self-scout, or free agency, some of that stuff. I’m still doing a good amount of the work in the office, and also, I have a laptop I bring on the road; it’s out in the car in the parking lot here and I take it everywhere I go.”

“I’m at the wrestling show and I have my NFL laptop ready to go while I’m writing the match card, laying out who’s gonna wrestle who on the big match, and I also have my NFL laptop, I might have the coach at Fulham calling to talk about players. You have to be ready to multitask, just like as a parent, you have multiple kids, multiple responsibilities, and you love everything you’re doing.”

The Khan family has been in a celebratory mood this weekend since the Jaguars won their NFL Wildcard playoff game against the Los Angeles Chargers after coming back from a 27-0 lead. The Jaguars won 31-30 to advance to the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs with just eight teams left in the race for the Super Bowl.
