Tony Khan on Jonathan Gresham going to IMPACT Wrestling
AEW President Tony Khan has reacted to Jonathan Gresham signing with IMPACT Wrestling.
Khan said during an appearance on Fightful's Grapsody podcast:
"I think Jonathan Gresham signed with IMPACT recently. I can't speak to that, but I believe that was the news. I would be remised if I didn't say that I like Jonathan Gresham and I like IMPACT, I think that's great. It's good for him to have a great opportunity there and it's good for them, they have a great wrestler there. It's great when wrestlers get opportunities and Jonathan Gresham is somebody who I had a good amount of experience with. I like Jonathan Gresham, he's very talented and that's a great place for him to go and hopefully have a really successful run as a wrestler."
Khan and Jonathan Gresham briefly worked together in 2022 after Khan purchased Ring of Honor from Sinclair Broadcast Group. Gresham was ROH World Champion at the time of the acquisition but The Octopus would ask for his release from AEW/ROH following a heated discussion with Khan backstage at the Death Before Dishonor pay-per-view in July. Gresham dropped the ROH World Title to Claudio Castagnoli on that show.
The Octopus made his IMPACT return in December and he is set to face Eddie Edwards at Hard To Kill on January 13.
