Tony Khan addresses his tweet that referenced Vince McMahon’s retirement

As previously noted, numerous people in the wrestling industry including AEW President Tony Khan reacted to the retirement of Vince McMahon.

While speaking to media after the 2022 ROH Death Before Dishonor PPV, Khan addressed his tweet where he called himself the “longest-tenured CEO” in wrestling…

“I was referencing AEW Rampage is on and just a fact. Of the big, major companies, of what I would consider The Big Three, I am the longest tenured. (NJPW President Takami) Ohbari and now there is a new CEO there (in WWE). If you consider it pro wrestling, then I think it’s a fair statement. I thought it was a factual statement, a note to promote Rampage, but that’s all it was. I can’t say anything else about it. I hopefully, maybe got some eyeballs on Rampage and I really care about Rampage a lot.” (quote courtesy of
