Tony Khan Says HOOK Is A Logical Challenger For A World Title Unlike Jinder Mahal, Responds To USA Network

Tony Khan boots up social media to fire some shots.

The AEW CEO took to Twitter on Tuesday, January 9 to send out two tweets. In the first tweet, Khan took aim at the controversial segment that aired on the January 6 episode of AEW Collision, which featured HOOK challenging Samoa Joe to a future AEW World Championship bout. Khan noted that there is a double standard online, as he accused fans of not criticizing WWE for booking Jinder Mahal against Seth Rollins in a World Heavyweight Championship match on the January 15 episode of Raw.

Khan then responded to the USA Network account, who recently took a playful jab at Khan by making a reference to Cagematch.

Khan said that the USA Network really put AEW in their place by getting Jinder Mahal in a big match on their television show. Khan also once again noted that Jinder Mahal hasn't won a match in nearly a full year.
