AEW President Tony Khan is one of the controversial figures in pro wrestling and every time Khan said something it would receive a huge backlash from wrestling fans. Also, Khan was criticized by several former wrestling personalities for his AEW bookings but he did not pay attention to them.
During an appearance on Busted Open Radio, Tony Khan said that people compare him to Paul Heyman.
The person I have people come up to me and say, as far as being a fan who was around pro wrestling and wrestlers for a long time and then jumped into the business, the person I think I get compared to most often of, ‘You remind me of this person,’ I think we’re really different people and I haven’t talked to him or gotten or see him in a really long time is Paul. Paul Heyman, not the other Paul (Levesque).H/T Ringside News
I grew up on that ECW stuff. Our products are different, he’s a genius and I’m not trying to compare the mindset at all, but as far as trying to keep your finger on the pulse of fans, during a commercial break, even going out and talking to fans and trying to keep them excited during the show, it means a lot to me. I’ve gotten to learn a lot from a lot of people in the wrestling business without having that official apprenticeship. I love the business so much.
Paul Heyman is a creative genius in pro wrestling and Tony Khan has a lot of things to learn from him.
