Tony Khan Invites Nick Khan To “Shove It Up His Ass” Over All In “Lies”
Tony Khan is not happy with what he has called “lies” being spread about AEW All In at Wembley Stadium and also suggested that WWE CEO Nick Khan can “shove it up his ass.”
AEW is gearing up for its biggest shows of all time and potentially one of the biggest shows in wrestling history when it produces All In from the 90,000-seat Wembley Stadium in London, England on August 27th.
Pre-sale tickets for the event went on sale early on the 2nd of May and that has resulted in 36,000 seats being snapped up three days before the general sale begins. Those numbers mean that it will be the biggest AEW show of all time but Tony Khan is not happy with a suggestion that the massive stadium could be scaled down for the event.
That was the assertion of ESPN contributor Mike Coppinger who suggested on social media that Wembley would be scaled to 40,000 seats for the event:
“Hearing Wembley is scaled for only 40K for AEW – far cry from last April when I was ringside for Tyson Fury-Dillian Whyte and it was packed to the brim with 94,000. Nothing beats the big-fight feel at Wembley”
Tony Khan was not having any of it however and called Coppinger’s claims “lies” before referencing Coppinger’s possible links to WWE CEO Nick Khan’s previous career:
“LIES. What a load of crap. Tell your agent Nick Khan to shove it up his ass”
LIES. What a load of crap. Tell your agent Nick Khan to shove it up his ass

The AEW boss followed up by questioning Coppinger’s source for such a claim that he says is “easily verified as a falsehood”:
“Since you carry the credentials of a credible reporter + represent the Worldwide Leader, I’m just curious: who was your source for this, and how can a reporter representing ESPN tweet something about a legit news story that’s so blatantly wrong and easily verified as a falsehood?”
Tony Khan has also had issues in the past with WWE contributor Ariel Helwani who was unhappy after he was unable to get the answers he wanted from the AEW boss in an interview. Helwani was also a client of Nick Khan during his days as Co-Head of Television at the Creative Artists Agency.
