Disco Inferno defended AEW boss Tony Khan on the latest episode of Keepin’ it 100 with Konnan. Asked about his opinion on Tony Khan’s comments about NWA on Full Gear Media Scrum, the former WCW TV Champion said:
“He does have a point. Because he shouldn’t be having to be the one saying this. They should have said it. He does have a deal [with NWA].”
Tony Khan answered questions in the post-show Media Scrum after Full Gear. He mentioned there that he feels less credited for what he has done for the NWA shows in recent weeks. He added that talent from AEW had appeared for NWA under his payroll. But NWA has never publicly thanked him for it.
Critics of Khan consider this a gesture of self-obsession. But Disco Inferno rejected such accusations. He admitted Khan was right on the issue.
He believes every promoter deserves credit for providing talent to a different promotion. This is an age-old tradition in pro wrestling. He also defended Khan for asking fans to make their friends and family members watch AEW Dynamite. He thinks this is a measure that every promoter should take to help publicize their show.
Disco Inferno has been known to be critical of Tony Khan and AEW in the past. But he proved that his opinions are not biased.
