Tony Khan writes cryptic message seemingly aimed at WWE

Last updated

AEW President Tony Khan recently posted a tweet that appeared to be aimed at WWE, and more specifically, WWE President Nick Khan.

Nick Khan was part of a sit-down interview with Ariel Helwani for BT Sport in the UK, and the WWE President would reveal that WWE is looking to move away from ‘indie’ wrestlers in their developmental brand to a wider outlook and more athletes from other sports.

‘We are doing a complete revamp on NXT, led by Triple H, who is really one of the architects of the original NXT,’ Nick Khan said. ‘What we found ’” it’s part of why we did the tryout yesterday ’” what we want to make sure is easy for folks who want to be WWE Superstars, is figuring out how to become WWE Superstars.”

Tony Khan would seemingly respond to this in his tweet, writing that “professional wrestling is an art form. You don’t create great artists by training them all to paint by numbers in the same way.’

It remains to be seen what revamp is done on WWE NXT, with this week’s episode reportedly set to have some of the new features that Nick Khan was talking about.

It’s fair to say that the momentum behind AEW right now is immense, and they appear to be the place to be for independent wrestlers going forward. The arrival of CM Punk this past Friday certainly helped this momentum, and September looks set to be a massive month in the history of professional wrestling.

Here is what AEW have in store for this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite:

  • CM Punk makes his first appearance on AEW Dynamite.
  • ‘Varsity Blonds’ Brian Pillman Jr. and Griff Garrison vs. ‘The Lucha Brothers’ Penta El Zero Mideo and Rey Fenix in an AEW Tag Title Eliminator tournament match.
  • Jamie Hayter vs. Red Velvet.
  • Orange Cassidy vs. Matt Hardy.
  • Malakai Black vs. Brock Anderson.
