WWE Star Reacts To ‘Injured’ Tony Khan’s NFL Draft Appearance

WWE Star Reacts To ‘Injured’ Tony Khan’s NFL Draft Appearance WWE/ESPN

WWE’s Pat McAfee has reacted to Tony Khan’s appearance at the NFL Draft in a neck brace after his AEW Dynamite ‘injury’.

On the April 24 episode of AEW Dynamite, Khan was the victim of an attack by Jack Perry and The Young Bucks.

After a gut punch from Perry and a Meltzer Driver from the Young Bucks, Khan was reportedly selling the injury on a closed set recording, wearing a neck brace.

With the NFL Draft underway, he’s been spotted wearing the neck brace once again in the Jacksonville Draft Room.

The Pat McAfee Show featured coverage of the draft, with the WWE star passing comment on Khan, saying:

“Wednesday night, he took a Meltzer Driver, I do believe.

“Guy’s got a broken neck and he’s battling through.”

Co-host Ty Schmit (in his Mad Mel Kiper character) would make an observation of his own and advice to Khan, saying:

“I understand keeping up with the gimmick.

“Someone should tell Tony Khan that if you have a neck brace on, don’t f**king move around like nothing’s wrong.

“Stick with the gimmick and look straight ahead like your neck’s broken.

“What are we doing here?”
