Report: WWE Furious About Tony Khan's Money In the Bank Tweet
Tony Khan poking fun at WWE causes anger
All Elite Wrestling haven't been afraid to take shots at WWE over the last three years and that continued on Friday after it emerged that Vince McMahon's company had moved the July 2 Money In The Bank pay-per-view from Las Vegas' Allegiant Stadium to the smaller MGM Grand Garden Arena.
AEW President Tony Khan couldn't help but poke fun at WWE for the move, tweeting: "Yesterday: one of my favorite days, including - great visits with fans + media - a trip to LA for the most fulfilling meeting of my life with @wbd leadership - dinner with my Dad + Dana White, where I got to break the news to Dana about MITB moving to MGM. Today: #AEWRampage on TNT! Genius move trying to take on Dana and the UFC in Vegas during International Fight Week."
While Khan's tweet was ultimately him just poking fun at a rival, it made certain individuals within WWE furious, Bryan Alvarez reported on Wrestling Observer Radio. There is no word on who the individuals were.
Khan wasn't the only person associated with AEW to take a shot at WWE, though, as CM Punk posted a photo from WrestleMania VII and wrote, "Another bomb threat smh," referring to the event being moved from the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum to the smaller Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena.
Tickets for Money In The Bank from the MGM Grand Garden Arena will go on sale on Wednesday, June 1. It is believed the venue will be set up to hold 12,000 fans.
