AEW founder Tony Khan came back swinging at Randy Orton on Twitter.
For those of you who haven’t been following along, it all started when CM Punk teased that he would be talking about Vince McMahon and Tony Khan on WWE Backstage. Punk said he would talk about the good and bad things he’s seen on today’s wrestling scene and said that “no one is safe.” Khan responded: “No one is safe? Sounds like a plane full of wrestlers in Saudi Arabia!”
Randy Orton, who just signed a multi-year deal to remain with WWE, chimed in apparently in defense of the company. That led to Khan firing back at Orton by tweeting, “I thought you only tagged me in your posts when you were grasping for leverage. That article’s over a year old + is about baseless claims made about my dad years ago. That’s the best you can do, nothing. Meanwhile in the time since that was written, you used the N word on twitch.”
Khan is referring to when Punk teased jumping to AEW back in October, an Instagram post that many interpreted as using AEW for leverage to get a better WWE deal. The N-word remark about Orton speaks for itself. You can scroll down below to hear Orton use the n-word.
Here is the clip of Orton using the n-word on Twitch. The original stream has been removed by Twitch because of the language used.
In the tweet below from October, Orton put over AEW, Cody Rhodes and Sammy Guevara. This was before he signed his new WWE deal.
