AEW President Tony Khan says WWE “is like the Harvey Weinstein of pro-wrestling”

During an appearance on the NFL Network, AEW President Tony Khan commented on his company’s success as a challenger brand against WWE…

“We’ve been doing this for five years, we are the most successful sports start up since the AFL, pre-merger. There has not been a challenger brand that has gained as much market share as AEW in many many years. We are like the Pepsi of pro-wrestling. We’re up against a really evil juggernaut. WWE is our competitor, that’s who we’re facing. WWE is like the Harvey Weinstein of pro-wrestling. I’m really proud of what we do down here.”

Weinstein is a former Hollywood entertainment executive. Earlier this week, New York’s highest court overturned Weinstein’s 2020 conviction on felony sex crime charges in a 4-to-3 decision.
