Booker T: Tony Khan Should Look At Himself As A General, I Feel He Has The Wrong Job

Booker T weighs in on Tony Khan's tweets.

Tony Khan made plenty of headlines this week as he called out a USA Network account that referenced Cagematch in relation Jinder Mahal vs. Seth Rollins. Khan mentioned a double standard, wondering why fans were upset that HOOK was going after the AEW World Title despite his winning record, but fine with Mahal getting a WWE World Heavyweight Title match despite not winning a singles match in a year.

Speaking on his Hall of Fame podcast, Booker weighed in on Tony's tweets.

"Why tweet something about Jinder Mahal? Why drag Jinder Mahal into this? Why do you want to put some shade on Jinder Mahal? Why do you want to put some shade on a talent? Talent has nothing to do with this. Talent is not booking the show. Talent is just going out there and doing a job, just like every talent in AEW. Can you imagine going after the talent in AEW just for the hell of it, for no reason?" questioned Booker.

He continued, "It was definitely low brow, as far as Tony Khan going after Jinder Mahal. Talent has nothing to do with this war other than being soldiers and going out there and doing their job. If Jinder Mahal did not get a win for a year, and he went out there and did that job for a full year, he went out there for a full year, he did his job, he was a soldier. For me, for the generals to be calling out the soldiers, which Tony Khan should be looking at himself as a general, being the guy that is commanding that company, and then calling all the shots, to be on Twitter and making comments like that. It just goes to show you that this guy has the wrong job, more than anything. I feel like Tony Khan has the wrong job. He should be in charge of social media [laughs]."

Booker concluded by saying, "If I was to give Tony Khan some advice, I would say, let people run the Twitter account that should be running it. If they need to run something by you as far as what they want to put out there, that's cool. As far as you up at 3 in the morning tweeting from the bathroom, bro, let it go. Let it go, seriously. It can ruin your life, seriously. Just having all that negativity on your mind, it can ruin your whole day."

Mahal is set to challenge Seth Rollins for the WWE World Heavyweight Title on the January 15 episode of WWE Raw.

HOOK will challenge Samoa Joe for the AEW World Title on the January 17 episode of AEW Dynamite.
