Jim Cornette Comments On Tony Khan Possibly Buying WWE



Following Vince McMahon’s return as WWE Chairman and rumors of the company potentially being up for sale, speculation has been rampant as to who could emerge as potential bidders. AEW President Tony Khan has been among those whose name has been on the forefront in the discussion. On the most recent episode of his Drive-Thru podcast, wrestling legend Jim Cornette shared his thoughts on Tony Khan possibly buying WWE.

Speaking to co-host Brian Last, Cornette claimed that Tony Khan is not capable of running a company the size of WWE. He also questioned whether Shahid Khan would even be willing to spend an outrageous amount of money.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On Shahid Khan shelling out over $6 billion: “They’ve spent an incredible amount of money [on AEW], they’ve taken in an incredible amount of money and who knows what’s what. But that doesn’t mean number one that Shahid Khan is gonna say ‘Okay, I’m ready to pony up $6 billion [WWE estimated value] all at the same time.’ And then what would they do with it?”

On if Tony Khan can run WWE: “This is so far above, and this is not even a knock on him, it’s far above me and I’ve worked there longer than he has which would be at all so far above Tony’s level of expertise, comfort or competence to run a company of that size. And yes, I know all the employees would come over, but he’s still got to tell him what to do and decide which ones to listen to and which ones not. And they wouldn’t sell it to him, because again, if you’re, whether it’s the WWE or whether it’s Sony Pictures or whatever major entertainment entity. Yeah, you might want Warner Brother Discovery to buy it, or Disney to buy it, or NBC Universal to buy it or whatever.

On why Tony Khan would not fit in WWE: “The employees at not only at the highest level, but also fairly well down to the middle of the company would be more experienced, more well versed and more organized in running a business than what the owner would be at that point.”
