Tony Khan: “Vince McMahon has allegedly used his power and influence to shoot a lot of shots”

As previously noted, the “Title Tuesday” edition of AEW Dynamite drew 609,000 viewers with a 0.26 rating in the 18-49 demo while WWE NXT drew 921,000 viewers with a 0.30 rating in the 18-49 demo. There was a thread on Twitter/X in regards to the viewership numbers and AEW President Tony Khan chimed in.

Here was the exchange…

@BeAnuraj: “The fact that NXT did it with Rhea [Ripley] and Dom [Dominik Mysterio] speaks a lot AEW’s main brand is no where close to WWE ‘s 3rd brand even with the hottest heel right now in Industry. Tony needs to go to the board room, maybe change a few board members and stop being a loser here, taking cheap shots at Vince McMahon won’t get you the ratings.”

@TheNeoism: “The difference is that Vince has the power and influence to take them cheap shots. He’s earned the right to make them. Tony Khan is Vince if you order him from Temu. You can ‘shop like a billionaire’ but you’ll get the cheapest tat doing so!”

Khan: “Yes. Vince has allegedly used his power and influence to shoot a lot of shots.”

Khan also wrote the following on Wednesday night…

“Thank you all who watch @AEWonTV! On any other Wednesday, #AEWDynamite would be on TBS now! Thanks to you AEW wrestlers + staff! We’ve come so far from a startup in a parking lot; we all teamed up to put on a great show last night! I hope that we always keep our challenger spirit.”
