Tony Khan Says He Respects Eric Bischoff's Accomplishments, 'He Just Has A Podcast Largely Devoted To Taking Shots At Us'

Tony Khan explains his side of things in regards to Eric Bischoff.

Eric Bischoff has crafted multiple tweets and spent multiple minutes on his podcast giving his thoughts on Tony Khan and AEW. Not all of his opinions are kind towards Khan and AEW, as he's implied Khan is a clown and called him a money mark.

Appearing on K&C Masterpiece, Tony Khan was asked why he doesn't get along with Bischoff.

"It's an interesting question. There haven't been that many wrestling companies that have risen to international prominance. There aren't that many wrestling companies in modern history that have sold tens of thousands of tickets and hundreds of thousands pay-per-views. In that sense, Eric and I do have something in common. I do respect his accomplishments. He just has a show, a podcast, that is largely devoted to taking shots at us and a lot of it isn't rational or logical or truthful. I don't think those things seem to matter to him anymore. I do respect what he accomplished with WCW. It was a great company. In that sense, I do respect him. We're on TNT and TBS, that's something I have in common with Eric, there aren't a lot of people that produced a lot of wrestling shows on TBS and TNT. That's one thing we do have in common," he said.

WCW programming aired on TBS and TNT before the company was bought by WWE in 2001.

WCW Nitro aired 286 episodes. AEW Dynamite will air its 238th episode on Wednesday.
