In the ever-turbulent world of professional wrestling, All Elite Wrestling (AEW) President Tony Khan seems to be facing mounting pressures. Recent ratings from Tuesday night have become a significant talking point among fans and industry experts. While AEW Dynamite: Title Tuesday and WWE's NXT clashed in their weekly ratings battle, it was NXT that emerged victorious. The overwhelming response on social platforms hinted at the dominance of WWE’s third-tier brand over AEW’s premier show, igniting considerable debate.
The growing chatter did not sit well with Khan. Taking to Twitter, he vehemently responded to fans suggesting that Vince McMahon, WWE’s Chairman, might be leveraging his powerful position to undercut competitors. Khan's tweet read, “Yes. Vince has allegedly used his power and influence to shoot a lot of shots.” With the barb out in the open, the wrestling community waits with bated breath to see if anyone from the WWE camp will respond. Rest assured, any rejoinder will be immediately relayed to our readers.

Michaels Draws Khan's Fire
However, Vince McMahon wasn't the sole recipient of Khan's recent ire on Twitter. NXT General Manager and wrestling legend Shawn Michaels also found himself at the receiving end of Khan's sharp words. This altercation was triggered by a tweet from a fan featuring a photo of Shawn Michaels, cigar in hand, alongside a 'Booker of the Year' accolade. Khan didn't hold back in his response, asserting, "Actually I'm pretty sure that last night blew whatever chance he had at winning that award."
