Tony Khan Television Presence Explained By Chris Jericho

Tony Khan Television Presence Explained By Chris Jericho AEW

Chris Jericho has explained why Tony Khan only occasionally appears on television in a new interview.

Appearing on Busted Open Radio, Chris Jericho commented about Tony Khan’s announcement on AEW Dynamite of the new series, AEW: All Access.

After Bully Ray wondered why the announcement was made in a pre-recorded segment instead of in front of the live crowd, Jericho responded:

“I think, probably, Tony’s very careful on how he presents himself on camera, so I think that’s probably it. I think he likes to kind of put the spotlight on the wrestlers, which is [why] he had Adam Cole do [the announcement]. And I think he’s probably more comfortable doing things that way in the back where you can have a couple takes.

“Now, every show, Tony comes out before the show and riles up the crowd and gets them pumped up and excited, but when it comes to corporate general manager-owner type stuff, he wants to put the focus onto his players the same way that he does with the Jacksonville Jaguars or with the Fulham Football Club in London. I think he just feels more comfortable that way as an executive.”

While Tony Khan has recently echoed similar sentiments regarding not wishing to become an on-screen character, he tends to draw plenty of heat from fans from Twitter alone.
