Tony Khan talks healthcare.
When All Elite Wrestling was first announced, a big talking point was the company offering healthcare to full-time employees. AEW President Tony Khan stated that wrestlers would be taken care of and insured if they happen to be injured. During the AEW Dynamite post-show media scrum, Khan was asked about medical insurance in AEW, in regards to Jon Moxley and Kenny Omega following their glass table spot on Dynamite.
"A lot of people in [AEW], that are wrestlers, are insured," said Khan. "Of the people you saw tonight, a large percentage of them are insured through AEW because they work full-time. Most people haven't been on all five shows. Of the people that have been on all five shows, almost all of them are full-time and have full-time benefits. Jon Moxley does get healthcare, but he gets it through his wife (Renee Young), who is a full-time employee also. Kenny (Omega) does get healthcare from here. He is a full-time employee of the company."
Khan went on to say that he has created full-time office positions for wrestlers to ensure they are insured. You can find more information about those positions by clicking here.
