AEW President Tony Khan Probably Thinks I'm an Idiot

I am 41 years old and a complete fanboy.

I basically started Rasslin' so I could talk professional wrestling with famous wrestlers and personalities, and pretty much every time I do it, I come across like a needy child.

And I'm fine with that.

This week I sat down for 45 straight minutes with All Elite Wrestling President Tony Khan and got an update on AEW's business. We talked about everything you'd imagine (Sting, Kenny Omega, Jon Moxley, the Dark Order, creating wrestling content in a pandemic, etc.) and my questions were great - outside of "Is Sting cool?" Yes, turns out he is pretty damn cool. We also talked about the memories that got young Tony Khan into the wrestling business, as his first recollections of pro wrestling align closely with mine, as he fell in love with a random Saturday Night's Main Event episode in 1990 and I just watched that episode a week ago.

Long story short, I love pro wrestling. I love all companies that produce it, and AEW is very interesting. 

If you've loved wrestling at any point in your life - I feel in love with it living in a trailer in rural Mississippi when I had just three TV channels - then please check out Rasslin'.
