Tony Khan Confirms Top AEW Executive’s Departure


Last week it was reported that Rafael Morffi, the Vice President of Live Events/Touring, was wrapping up his time with AEW.

 Morffi is now moving on to work with the Barclays Center after being a part of All Elite Wrestling since its inception. 

During the AEW Worlds End media scrum, Tony Khan was questioned about Morffi’s departure.

“What a way to finish your five-year run in AEW with a sell out, Rafael Morffi, who has been our head of live events for five years. He left on the highest of high notes with a home town sell out in New York. He’s been a huge part of AEW too. Whether it was New York or all across the world, Raf has been a huge part of the growth of AEW from day one and for five years I’ve been lucky to work beside Rafael and he’s taken on a new position outside of pro wrestling as another great venue, and they’ll be very fortunate to have him. I’ll miss him very much, we all will,” he stated.
