Tony Khan slates WWE for recent releases and contract situation

Last updated

AEW President Tony Khan recently took a very public swipe at WWE for their recent bout of releases over the past year.

Speaking on Busted Open Radio, Khan noted how WWE Superstars do not sign “real” contracts, as they can be released at seemingly any time.

‘Anybody who signs a contract [in WWE] these days, is not signing a real contract, in my opinion,’ Tony Khan said during the show.

‘It’s a temporary arrangement. People who come wrestle with me, a lot of these people are frankly lifers and they know that. There are some people who are here and work really hard. There are some people who come in and work more than really hard.

‘I feel like is their actual life and will be with me for the rest of my life. And I don’t know if everybody who works for my competition can say that.

“I think there are people who work there and they aren’t even sure they’re gonna be there next week. There is a lot more security with a contract here.

“I can’t say I’m going to extend every contract or bring every person back, but I also ’” through the last couple of years ’” have not been doing mass layoffs” the AEW President concluded.
