Tony Khan Addresses Shane McMahon AEW Rumors Following Mercedes Mone Airport Conversation WWE, AEW

Tony Khan has addressed the Shane McMahon AEW rumors following McMahon’s chance meeting with Mercedes Mone at a New York airport.

For several weeks now there have been persistent rumors linking Shane McMahon with a shock move to AEW, all off the back of a report which claimed that the former WWE star had been in contact with some AEW talent.

Fuel was then added to the fire when McMahon happened to run into AEW TBS Champion Mercedes Mone at LaGuardia Airport in New York following Forbidden Door on June 30.

Not for the first time, Tony Khan was quizzed about the possibility of McMahon potentially appearing on AEW TV whilst appearing on Maggie & Perloff.

Khan noted that he had never met or spoken with McMahon, but would be open to doing so – even sending out an open invitation for Shane-O-Mac to “stop by” the company:

“Shane McMahon is somebody that I’ve never met, but he has a lot of experience in wrestling and a lot friends in AEW.

“I have never really had any conversations with him or talked to him ever.

“I know he ran into Mercedes Mone after Forbidden Door, which is a cool coincidence. I have never met him. I’d be open to talking to him, and he’s welcome to stop by at any time.

“I know that’s an interesting rumor. There have been all kinds of interesting people in wrestling to come into AEW and walk through that Forbidden Door.

“This might be, if it ever happens, one of the more shocking ones. Even though I’ve never talked to him, he seems like a really nice guy.”

WrestleTalk will provide any further updates on the Shane McMahon to AEW situation as/when they become available.
