Tony Khan Reveals When Business Became Personal To Him

Tony Khan AEW

Tony Khan has revealed the private family matter that led to his AEW business becoming personal due to actions by WWE.

As the AEW Owner, CEO & General Manager, Tony Khan oversees everything involved in All Elite Wrestling. That means producing and booking five hours of weekly AEW shows (Dynamite, Collision & Rampage) along with Ring of Honor, which Khan owns.

He’s also busy helping to run the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars and Fulham of the Premier League along with other businesses. Clearly, Tony Khan (who just turned 41 years old on Wednesday), is a busy guy that also loves pro wrestling.

Tony Khan is also known for not being shy on Twitter/X, which he uses to announce AEW matches/segments and promote his other businesses as well. Sometimes Khan goes far by calling people like WWE’s Triple H a “bald a**hole” and other times he rants about WWE ratings, which causes AEW people to wish he should just shut his phone off.

On Twitter/X, Tony Khan revealed something very personal on the one-year anniversary of his mother overcoming a serious illness. In his tweets about it, Khan also mentioned that this was also when WWE tried to get AEW wrestlers to get out of their contracts, which is what made the “war” with WWE a personal one.

“This weekend marks 1 year since @MayoClinic saved my mom’s life. During her ordeal many AEW talent came to me alleging WWE tampering, inducing them to break their contracts. I’ll never forget these phone calls at her side in the hospital; it’s when business became personal for me.”

“This is nothing new, I mentioned it last year after she came home. It’s relevant today because she checked in for surgery 1 year ago today. As I’ve mentioned several times since, @MayoClinicare heroes and thanks to them, her recovery from a very grim outlook has been a miracle.”

Tony Khan blasts WWE fans for “turning their wrath” to his mother after a near-death experience

Following those two Tweets/X posts above, Tony Khan commented that “WWE avatar accounts” on Twitter/X go after him every day and even take shots at him about his mom nearly dying.

“Not that I should be surprised, but the same WWE avatar accounts that spam me every day, no matter what I say or what it’s about, now turning their wrath to Mom recovering from a near death experience, is why I straight hate these people to the bottom of my heart with all my soul.”

That kind of behavior is going too far. These fans need to be respectful towards a man’s mother going through something serious like that.
