Tony Khan On Potentially Wrestling In AEW: I Don’t Think Anybody Really Wants To See That

The AEW President isn’t planning on making his in-ring debut anytime soon.

Throughout the history of professional wrestling, authority figures have occasionally taken matters into their own hands and stepped between the ropes, with some even going on to claim championship gold. AEW President Tony Khan has largely remained off-screen outside of making announcements, however, and it appears as though that isn’t likely to change.

Speaking recently to Levack and Goz, Khan was asked whether he’d ever consider getting in the ring and taking on one of his talents, to which AEW’s head honcho quickly shut down the idea.

“I don’t think anybody really wants to see that. Not anytime soon. That’s not anything I think we’re going to do. I do think AEW has a great roster, the best wrestlers in the world. I would rather try to put the best matches and we have exciting rivalries building in AEW right now.”

In typical Tony Khan fashion, he then went on to promote AEW’s upcoming shows, with it being a pretty safe bet that Khan himself won’t be getting into the squared circle.

As always, we’ll aim to provide any further updates on AEW and Tony Khan as soon as we hear more.
