Tony Khan surprised many when he decided to react via social media and call out John Cena and The Undertaker. The AEW boss obviously knows how to provoke the 'other side' “This week, 2 active decades-long ratings streaks from 2 great legends were ended With all due respect, until this week’s head-to-head AEW on TBS vs WWE on USA, neither John Cena nor Undertaker had ever been on a WWE show with under 1 million total viewers + under 400k in the demo”- Tony Khan wrote.
Chris Jericho reacts to Khan's statements
AEW's Chris Jericho reacted to Khan's statements in an interview with TheMessanger.com. Chris Jericho believes that Tony Khan has the right to react the way he wants. The fact that the boss is such a successful company gives him the right to call out whomever he wants.
At least that's what Chris Jericho thinks. “I learned years ago that bosses are going to be bosses, and billionaires are going to be billionaires. I’ve been working for billionaires for 25 years. At this point, you can’t control Tony Khan.
He’s going to do what he wants to do and God bless him. He created this company. He runs this company. He also grew up in the social media era”. - Jericho said, as quoted by pwmania.com! Chris Jericho feels that he has no right to criticize Tony Khan or give him advice, given that Khan is his boss.
Here you can feel respect, but probably also a dose of respect and fear for your boss. “I’m not going to tell him, ‘Take your phone away,’ because he’s my boss. Say what you want. Whatever. I think it’d be worse if I said that stuff because I’m not the boss, you know? Tony Khan owns AEW. He can do what he wants. I’m not going to tell him no”.
