AEW star Ricky Starks comes to the defense of Tony Khan against “internet trolls”

During an interview with’s WrestleBinge podcast, Ricky Starks commented on AEW President Tony Khan…

“He’s a great dude. He really is. I’ve never met someone as nice as he is. People always assume someone in that position, someone in that tax bracket is going to be a certain way and he isn’t like that. He is a very, very sweet man. I think people need to realise that we are a startup company. We are all just trying to figure this out.”

“I don’t think you can say anything to internet trolls because even if you presented them with facts and evidence, they still believe what they want to believe. So I think it’s best to just keep the energy to ourselves, right? Because here’s the thing. They will never experience what we experience, in that the beauty and joy of someone like Tony when you come to the back after your match. It’s a different feeling to experience that with your boss. It could be a hug; it could be a fist bump. It could be anything.” (quotes courtesy of
