Tony Khan Says Shahid Khan Didn’t Believe AEW Would be Successful

Tony Khan recently spoke with Renee Paquette on Oral Sessions and revealed many interesting things. Khan revealed that his father, Shahid Khan, initially didn’t think that All Elite Wrestling would be successful.

It’s been only two years since AEW became a thing and it’s safe to say that it’s lived up to the hype. 

“He’s a really nice person. He’s very supportive, and he’s a very loving man. He’s also a very hard man. He’s not going to give it to you easy. He’s not going to tell you that you pulled something off or if you did a good job on something. I don’t hear it from him often, but in public, he admitted that he was very wrong about AEW.”

“He went to multiple big publications and said in print that it was a good lesson [for him] in parenting to learn to trust your kids…Hearing him say good job on AEW each week is very nice.”
