Tony Khan Fires Back At FOX On Social Media

AEW President Tony Khan has called out Fox News on social media after the network posted an article suggesting AEW had ‘cooled off’ in recent months.

Fox News’ article contained opinions about the Khan family’s Jacksonville Jaguars as well as suggesting that AEW was not the hot property that it once was in the wrestling world.

Tony Khan wasted no time in firing back wholeheartedly at the network touting the fact that AEW Dynamite continues to routinely beat Fox News shows in the ratings on Wednesday nights:

“Hey @FoxNews it’s amusing hearing you opining about @AEW ratings considering #AEWDynamite on Wednesday has beaten EVERY single @FoxNews show for 6 straight weeks! Here are the recent charts (including this week) to prove it. See you TONIGHT on @TNTdrama 10pmET/9pmCT @ #AEWRampage”

“Thanks @FoxNews, I appreciate that you’ve highlighted @AEW ratings when #AEWDynamite on Wednesdays has beaten EVERY single show on your network for 6 straight weeks. Here are a few more charts, Twitter only let me attach 4 weeks worth to my last tweet! See you TONIGHT #AEWRampage”

“Did you know #AEWDynamite on Wednesdays on @TNTdrama has beaten EVERY single show on @FoxNews for 6 straight weeks? Surely @FOXNews knows as they like talking tv ratings; maybe they should focus on their content instead of playing boar on the floor. See you TONIGHT @ #AEWRampage”

Fox News’ sister network FOX is of course the home of WWE’s blue brand as it has aired Friday Night SmackDown since October 2019 after inking a billion-dollar deal with the company.
