Tony Khan Speaks About William Regal and Chris Jericho

Tony Khan, current AEW President, recently appeared on SiriusXM’s Busted Open Radio to speak about Chris Jericho and William Regal. This was after the AEW Dynamite Episode that took place on the 9th of March in Estero, Florida.

Tony Khan spoke about the recent transformation of the former AEW World Champion. He turned heel once again, as he was a babyface for a very large amount of time.

Tony Khan Praises Chris Jericho and William Regal For Their Work

“I mean, look at Chris Jericho.

Another reinvention of Chris Jericho,” Khan stated. “I think one of the most timely ones we’ve seen. It was perfect timing for Chris to come in with a new iteration of Jericho. He looks much better than he ever, in AEW, has.

“I think he looks like peak Chris Jericho right now in so many ways. His physical fitness is through the roof, and we’ve never had him here looking like this. But also, mentally, I think, having a little time off, Chris came back really sharp, and I really respect what he’s doing”.

AEW President then spoke about William Regal’s promo that received a lot of praise from various AEW fans. He did go overtime and usually that is not a good thing. However, Tony Khan stated that the way he handled going overtime was quite impressive and only a man of his experience and talent could have done it.

William made his AEW debut nearly a week ago at AEW Revolution. He is extremely well respected in the professional wrestling industry and he was basically running WWE NXT at one time. He has also trained a lot of wrestlers that are doing well today.

“That was an amazing promo and it sets a great example, I think,” Tony Khan stated. “Everybody in the back has so much respect for him, and you know, if his interview goes long, it means somebody else might have to cut their interview or their segment short.

And that was what happened and it was very cool of him to apologize to anybody that was affected by it, because generally, we try to keep the show moving, try to keep the shows on time. You know, that was very cool of him to do that and he didn’t have to, but he did, and I think it shows what a classy person he is”.
