Matt Hardy Reveals What Makes Tony Khan A “Better Boss” Than Vince McMahon

Tony Khan Vince McMahon

Matt Hardy has opened up about the differences between working for Vince McMahon and Tony Khan.

Hardy spent much of his career across multiple stints working for WWE and Vince McMahon before heading to AEW in March 2020. It’s no secret that McMahon and Khan are very different characters and this is reflected in how they conduct business.

Speaking on a recent episode of his Extreme Life of Matt Hardy podcast, the star discussed how closely he’s worked with Khan since moving to AEW. Hardy stated that the AEW President is the best boss he’s ever worked for due to the consideration he gives to talent and their lives away from the ring.

“I know this for a fact Tony Khan is the best boss I’ve ever worked for, because Tony looks at his wrestlers as human beings. They’re not just cogs in the machine where he’s focused on what they’re going to do for him in wrestling. He realizes they have a personal life at home, especially people who have families and kids.

If I’m away and he knows I’m not going to be on the pay-per-view on Sunday and I finish at the Fan Fest on Saturday, he lets me go home on Saturday. He doesn’t want to just keep you around just in case.”

If I’m not needed, he’ll let me go home and be with my kids. He wants me to be with my kids. So I really appreciate and I’m very grateful for the care and love he has for people having personal lives.”

Vince McMahon To Sell WWE To Tony Khan?

Vince McMahon returned to WWE’s Board of Directors on January 6th along with two associates. To make room for his return McMahon removed three existing Board members and two more resigned. This was followed by the departure of his daughter and co-CEO Stephanie McMahon.

McMahon was elected as Executive Chairman on January 10th and has repeatedly stated that he has come back to WWE in order to facilitate the sale of the company. Speaking in a recent interview, Tony Khan claimed that he’s interested in “potentially being involved” in the sale.
