Eric Bischoff: Take on Khan’s Social Media Antics

After the ratings for the recent episodes of AEW Dynamite and NXT were revealed, Tony Khan took to social media to make several controversial remarks.

Not only did he comment on Vince McMahon’s assault allegations, but he also criticised wrestling legends like The Undertaker and John Cena for not drawing enough viewers for NXT, noting that they broke records by finally being on a TV show that drew under a million viewers.

However, it was on his show, Strictly Business, that Eric Bischoff gave his unfiltered opinion on Khan’s actions. He expressed his belief that Khan is “beyond help” and doesn’t seem to want any assistance. Bischoff further elaborated that Khan’s desire appears to be more about emulating figures like Vince McMahon or Paul Heyman rather than genuinely seeking guidance:

“I think Tony is beyond help. And I don’t think Tony Khan is the type of person that wants help. I think Tony Khan more than anything else wants to be Paul Heyman or wants to be Vince McMahon. This [AEW] is a vanity project. He loves wrestling, okay, I get it, he loves wrestling, he loves it. He loves it with every fibre of his being. That doesn’t mean he’s good at it. Unless Tony recognises that he’s not good at it? You could bring in anybody you wanted to and it won’t work because he won’t listen…not to the extent that he needs to. I wouldn’t wish that position on anybody that I know, absolutely not.”
