Tony Khan Takes Shot At WWE's Saudi Arabia Travel Delays, Calls Out Randy Orton For Using N Word

Shots fired.

CM Punk returned to WWE programming on WWE Backstage last week, with many wondering what his actual role, control and input would be on the program. Monday, Punk took to Twitter in an effort to clear the air.

After tagging All Elite Wrestling founder Tony Khan, Khan responded on Twitter by making light of WWE's travel woes to Saudi Arabia a few weeks back.

Several WWE superstars were delayed in Saudi Arabia for hours after WWE Crown Jewel earlier this month, which led to rampant speculation backstage that continues today.

Shortly after Khan's tweet, Randy Orton followed up with one of his own, pointing a finger right back at the Khan family. However, the article in which he shared was a story that didn't go anywhere.

Khan fired back, calling out Orton for using his name as leverage in recent months before re-signing with WWE. Khan also referenced Orton using the N word on Twitch. The stream in which Orton used the word also featured him praising AEW. The stream was quickly deleted.

In the past, Punk hasn't seemed to thrilled with how he was courted by AEW, with members of the company responding in kind.

In the wee hours of Tuesday, things continued. Randy Orton would compare Tony Khan to longtime TNA owner Dixie Carter.

Fightful will have full coverage of whatever war of words between AEW and WWE has, which will likely resume tomorrow, then the following day.
