Konnan – ‘Tony Khan & AEW Are Hard To Deal With’



On a recent edition of his “Keepin’ It 100” podcast, AAA booker Konnan discussed his professional issues with AEW President Tony Khan.

Konnan recalled an incident in late 2022 in which Khan withdrew Sammy Guevara and Tay Melo from the AAA Nocho de Campeones event due to another AEW wrestler testing positive for COVID-19. Khan wanted Melo to serve as a replacement.

Konnan expressed his astonishment at Khan’s reaction, stating his inability to comprehend Khan’s discontentment.

Konnan noted that Khan was upset when he indirectly referred to the COVID-19-positive wrestler as “some chick” on his podcast, believing it to be less disrespectful than mentioning her directly.

The AAA booker said, “Tony got really, really mad about this and I can’t even believe he got mad. I was thinking to myself, you’ve got so many girls but you’re going to use her.. okay. And then I said on the podcast, I go ‘some chick got (COVID)’ because I’m pretty sure he didn’t want me to say the name. And when he saw me, he goes, ‘What do you mean some chick?’ Like, oh give me a break, dude. So, would you rather have had me say the name?’ It’s not being disrespectful. If you say ‘chick’ I think they know what you mean. ‘Hey, that’s a hot chick,’ is that disrespectful?”

He continued, “I’m going to be very vague with what I’m about to tell you and remember I said it today and very soon you’ll find out what I’m talking about, what comes around goes around. And when it happens, you’re going to go, ‘Okay, now I see what you’re talking about.’ So, have your little fun while you can.”
