Tony Khan On Shane McMahon’s AEW Interest: ‘I’ve Never Met Or Spoke With Him’

Shane McMahon may be eyeing up a role with All Elite Wrestling, but there’s been no direct communication with AEW President Tony Khan. 

It was recently claimed that Shane had contacted AEW regarding a potential role with the company. This alleged communication comes over a year after McMahon’s most recent appearance for WWE in an impromptu match at WrestleMania 39. That show saw Shane suffer a torn quadriceps injury in his bout with The Miz

Tony Khan on Shane McMahon

The idea of a McMahon working for Tony Khan may seem impossible, but this ‘new era’ of wrestling has been one of massive changes. When asked for comment from the Wrestling Observer, Khan made clear that he has not spoken with Shane. 

“I’ve never met him or talked to him in my life.”

To be clear, the initial claim about Shane reaching out to AEW made clear that he had reached out to wrestlers and did not specifically mention Khan. McMahon himself has yet to comment on the reports that he has reached out to AEW.
