WWE’s Randy Orton and AEW President Tony Khan fire social media shots at one another

By Jason Powell, ProWrestling.net Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

Randy Orton and AEW President Tony Khan fired social media shots at one another on Monday. As previously noted, Khan responded to a CM Punk tweet that included him by taking a poke at WWE over the crew being stranded in Saudi Arabia. Orton responded by implying that people who live in glass houses should not throw stones, then linked to an October 2018 story regarding Khan’s father being investigated for corruption in England.

“I thought you only tagged me in your posts when you were grasping for leverage,” Khan responded. “That article’s over a year old (plus) is about baseless claims made about my dad years ago. That’s the best you can do, nothing. Meanwhile in the time since that was written, you used the N word on twitch.”

Powell’s POV: Well, this took an unexpected twist with Orton going after Khan and then Khan firing back. I got a kick out of Khan’s initial comments in response to Punk. I’m not sure why Orton felt the need to chime in. It’s Orton’s right to do so obviously, but it’s hard to blame Khan for returning fire in order to defend his father.

  1. The only thing anyone needs to say in response to Money Mark is:

    Marko Stunt
    Orange Cassidy
    Michael Nakazawa
    etc.

    • Nobody is gonna say those names because you’re the only little bitch bothered by them. Sorry they make more in a day than you do in a year, chode.

  2. Khan tried to take a shot at WWE with the Saudi Arabia hostage bullshit thing that has been debunked several times already and Randy fired back at him. Khan was literally the one who tried to take a cheap shot first.
