Tony Khan is my role model. After being a lifelong avid fan of professional wrestling, he started All Elite Wrestling.
I love Tony. His passion and love for wrestling shows up in AEW storytelling. I hope someday I become a manager who’s one quarter as good to my folks as Tony Khan is to his (Brodie, Mox, Hangman/MJF, Sting, and everyone else really). Their talent is treated well and has creative freedom. I aspire to have the same passion in whatever I choose to do in life.
He brought CM Punk back into the industry after 7 long years!!! I got goosebumps hearing him talk about why he left: “I was never going to get healthy physically, mentally, spiritually, or emotionally staying in the same place that got me sick in the first place.” Thank you Tony for making me cry like a baby.
My moonshot plan for 2024 is to create a show like AEW that focuses on long-term storytelling in our industry and provides emotion as a service.
Until We Meet Again…
