Tony Khan Takes A Dig At WWE Superstars John Cena And The Undertaker After NXT Episode

9 months ago By Sports Desk

Tony Khan is a name that’s well-known in the world of wrestling, especially as the boss of All Elite Wrestling (AEW). He’s known for his competitive spirit and for often commenting on WWE, which is AEW’s biggest competition. Just recently, after an episode of NXT, Khan took to social media to share some interesting thoughts. These thoughts were about two of WWE’s biggest stars: John Cena and The Undertaker.

For those who may not be aware, WWE and AEW are two major wrestling promotions. They sometimes have their shows airing on the same night. This past Tuesday was one of those nights. WWE’s show NXT went head-to-head with AEW’s special edition, called “Dynamite: Title Tuesday.” When two big shows air at the same time, it’s always interesting to see which one gets more viewers. This time, AEW’s show had fewer viewers than NXT.

But Tony Khan didn’t focus on the overall viewership numbers. Instead, he highlighted a special record that came to an end. He pointed out a fact about John Cena and The Undertaker. These two wrestlers are legends in WWE. They have been a part of many shows and matches. Khan shared that for two decades, any WWE show that featured either John Cena or The Undertaker always had more than 1 million total viewers. Plus, these shows always had more than 400,000 viewers in a specific age group. This age group is called “the demo.”

However, this past Tuesday, that long-lasting record was broken. The NXT episode, which went up against AEW’s show, had less than 1 million viewers. And in “the demo,” it had less than 400,000 viewers. Tony Khan shared this fact on a social media platform called X. He wrote: “This week, 2 active decades-long ratings streaks from 2 great legends were ended. With all due respect, until this week’s head-to-head AEW on TBS vs WWE on USA, neither John Cena nor Undertaker had ever been on a WWE show with under 1 million total viewers + under 400k in the demo.”

Now, some people might wonder why Tony Khan shared this fact. After all, AEW’s show had even fewer viewers than NXT that night. Some might think that Khan should be more focused on improving his own show’s viewership rather than pointing out something about WWE’s numbers. But those who know Tony Khan also know that he enjoys highlighting moments where AEW can claim a victory, even if it’s a small one.

Wrestling fans had a lot to say about Khan’s comments. Some fans agreed with him and felt that it was an important point to highlight. They believe that it shows how AEW is becoming a strong competition for WWE. Other fans felt that Khan was just trying to stir up some talk and make headlines. After all, in the world of wrestling, a little bit of drama and rivalry can be good for business.

It’s worth noting that both John Cena and The Undertaker have had incredible careers in WWE. They’ve been part of many memorable moments and matches. They’ve won championships and have a lot of fans all over the world. So, even if this particular record was broken, it doesn’t take away from their achievements.

At the end of the day, competition between WWE and AEW is good for wrestling fans. It means that both promotions will try their best to put on great shows. And fans get to enjoy exciting matches and storylines. As for Tony Khan’s comments, they’re just a small part of the ongoing rivalry between WWE and AEW. And as long as this rivalry continues, fans can expect more such talking points in the future.

In conclusion, Tony Khan’s latest remarks on WWE superstars John Cena and The Undertaker have certainly sparked discussions. It remains to be seen how WWE responds, if at all. But one thing’s for sure, the world of wrestling never has a dull moment.
