As noted earlier, it was reported in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that WWE President Nick Khan has had talks with New Japan Pro Wrestling about a possible working relationship.
AEW Owner and President Tony Khan addressed the report in a video posted on Twitter from Daily’s Place ahead of tonight’s AEW Dynamite.
Tony Khan pointed out that Nick Khan has been in talks with NJPW for the last couple of months and he sarcastically said “you’ve gotten a lot done.”
Tony noted that AEW has had Yuji Nagata, Ren Narita, and Rocky Romero and Roppongi Vice recently reunited on Dark. He also mentioned how Jon Moxley successfully defended the IWGP U.S. Title and there are more plans for that title.
Tony called Nick Khan “some con man from Connecticut.” Listen to Tony Khan’s comments below.
