Is Tony Khan buying WWE? The Khan Family is among those who might purchase WWE. Although Vince McMahon has yet to find a suitable buyer for his billion-dollar business, AEW President Tony Khan is confident that he and his father Shahid Khan are able to come up with the money needed to buy the titanic firm.
Khan expressed interest in the sale of WWE during an interview with the Maggie and Perloff Show and made a suggestion that his family might buy out McMahon’s business. He stated:
“I am interested in the news that there is potentially a sales process and certainly, I think we’ve shown, when there are acquisitions and transactions, we’re capable of making the big purchases, whether my dad steps up with the (Jacksonville) Jaguars or Fulham FC in the Premier League, and he’s done such a great job building up the club and putting resources into it, and we’re playing football at a high level. With AEW, we’ve shown that we can build a company.”
“Even when I purchased Ring of Honor, that’s a very different thing than WWE, but Ring of Honor is a company with 20 years of history and I really have enjoyed running it, and we’ve shown that we’re at all-time highs in terms of every business metric since we relaunched it, and it’s only going to get better. AEW is my main focus, but certainly, when that news is out there, it’s very interesting. Stay tuned to AEW Dynamite and AEW Rampage, you never know when I’m going to address something. On the other hand, it’s very preliminary to talk about that process. If there is a process there, which it sounds like there may be, I’m interested in being part of it.”
Tony Khan on managing his extensive workload
For the AEW President, it all comes down to being able to multitask. Here is what he had to say:
“I started out, and I would be in the football office 80 hours a week.
Now, because originally when I started working at Fulham, I started outsourcing some of my work that I would do as far as the analytics on the weekly opponent, or the team, to self-scout, or free agency, some of that stuff.
I’m still doing a good amount of the work in the office, and also, I have a laptop I bring on the road; it’s out in the car in the parking lot here and I take it everywhere I go.
I’m at the wrestling show and I have my NFL laptop ready to go while I’m writing the match card, laying out who’s gonna wrestle who on the big match, and I also have my NFL laptop,
I might have the coach at Fulham calling to talk about players. You have to be ready to multitask, just like as a parent, you have multiple kids, multiple responsibilities, and you love everything you’re doing.“
