AEW's Malakai Black: Vince McMahon & Tony Khan Are Extremely Different People

Black gives his thoughts on TK and VKM

Malakai Black’s start in AEW has been very strong indeed. Booked like a star from the day he appeared, he tasted victory in his first match last week, dismantling Cody Rhodes in Dynamite.

Post-match, Black sought the opinion of AEW head Tony Khan, and now telling Sean Waltman on the Pro Wrestling 4 Life podcast, Black has spoken on his relationship with Khan, and how he compares to Vince McMahon:

"Great. Absolutely great. He's very enthusiastic and spontaneous individual. He has an incredible amount of love for what he does and his locker room. He's always available. I briefly spoke to him [on August 5] and he thanked me for what we did. He thought it was really cool. I appreciated it. It's very different. Vince McMahon and Tony are very 180 and two extremely different people. A lot of it has to do with where he comes from, how he is as a person, how young he is. Definitely a different perspective on society and a different mentality. That's okay and great. It works very well for me. I have nothing but good things to say about him. He's been fair and blunt with me, which I appreciate people being upfront and honest with me, even when it's not in my favour. I prefer people to tell me, 'I'm not feeling this.' Cool, at least you let me know vs 'Okay, maybe.' He's very good at that. I appreciate that very much. I think AEW is making very cool waves, it's a great company to be part of and I came in at the right time.”
