Booker T Questions If Tony Khan Is Losing His Mind

Booker T has given his thoughts on Tony Khan and ‘bots’

Tony Khan is a divisive figure in wrestling, and his recent findings about supposed ‘twitter bots’ amplifying anti-AEW sentiments has caused further debate about the AEW President.

Now Booker T has given his thoughts on the situation, speaking bluntly on the Hall of Fame podcast:

“Is Tony Khan losing his damn mind? I know he’s off into analytics, I think he works in that field, but people are going to hate, okay? Everybody is not going to like ya,” Booker T said. “I know Eric Bischoff said that Tony Khan had thin skin, and this came out right after that. I don’t know if that proves that or not.”

However, Booker did urge Khan to focus on the positives rather than the negatives:

“If you think they’re not going to talk about you, you’re wrong,” Booker said. “And if you think they are talking about you, there again, they say any news is good news, right? So, if they’re talking about you, good or bad, for me it’s good. You should look at my Twitter account, Tony, they hate me. But I’ve got so much love from so many people at the same time.

“I am sure Tony Khan has got a lot of love from so many people, because this guy is delivering jobs. So think about that, not thinking about how people on Twitter, because you will lose your mind thinking about people that is saying negative comments about you.”

Booker continued, saying he has only seen positive comments about Khan and AEW:

“That’s all it has got to be, is comments. Because I haven’t seen anything but pretty much good stories about AEW in the social media sphere. So I don’t know, man,” Booker said. “Kick out, that’s what we say in the wrestling business. You’ll be alright.”

Regardless, negative comments are never going to completely disappear, especially in the pro wrestling discourse, with Booker noting how wrestling fans often change their minds about acts, and are usually vocal with their opinions:

“I believe it. I believe it as far as people having negative comments because I see them all the time. Cody Rhodes right now is a pariah as far as AEW fans go, they hate him. It’s amazing how one minute they can love you, and the next minute they can hate you,” Booker said. “But then again, that’s what the wrestling business is. You can be a heel one day, and you can be a babyface the next, I love it, man. If you’re tuning in, it’s good, that’s the way I look at it.”
