“To suggest that Tony Khan was Booker of the Year, Promoter of the Year when his company damn near imploded last year as a result of the piss poor decisions, immature decisions, and nonsensical decisions that Tony Khan has made last year, is a joke.”

He wouldn’t just take Khan to task either, with Dave Meltzer also coming under fire:

“I gotta tell you, he’s a liar, he’s a fraud, he’s a weak-minded person, and he’s been doing it for years.
