Tony Khan Discusses Comparisons To Paul Heyman


AEW President Tony Khan has been around wrestling for his entire life as he started off by being a fan who attended shows and booked events in his notebook prior to starting All Elite Wrestling. 

Khan didn’t learn from just one person while following the history of the business. 

While appearing on Busted Open Radio, Khan said that fans have told him that he is similar to Paul Heyman.

“The person I have people come up to me and say, as far as being a fan who was around pro wrestling and wrestlers for a long time and then jumped into the business, the person I think I get compared to most often of, ‘You remind me of this person,’ I think we’re really different people and I haven’t talked to him or gotten or see him in a really long time is Paul. Paul Heyman, not the other Paul (Levesque). I grew up on that ECW stuff. Our products are different, he’s a genius and I’m not trying to compare the mindset at all, but as far as trying to keep your finger on the pulse of fans, during a commercial break, even going out and talking to fans and trying to keep them excited during the show, it means a lot to me. I’ve gotten to learn a lot from a lot of people in the wrestling business without having that official apprenticeship. I love the business so much,” he said before noting that wrestling is in a good and healthy state.
