Matt Hardy Explains Why He Likes Working For Tony Khan In AEW

Matt Hardy likes working for Tony Khan.

During a recent interview with the Daily Mail out of the U.K., the pro wrestling veteran described Tony Khan as a boss and how it is working for him in AEW.

Featured below are some of the highlights.

On what it’s like working with AEW President Tony Khan in the promotion after joining them in 2020: “He is an amazing human being overall. I love working with him. He’s like the most fair boss, and he very much values us talent[s] as human beings. There’s sometimes where you can work for people, and you know you hear this about WWE a lot, sometimes you just feel like you’re a cog in a machine. And they use you as long as you’re fully functioning and the machine continues to run. Whenever you’re taking out they put another cog in.”

On how unlike other promoters, Khan is more than willing to give his employees time off for family time: “With Tony, if I’m not on [the] shows, if we have a pay-per-view week and I have something on ‘Dynamite,’ and there’s a lot Friday on ‘Rampage.’ If I’m not on the pay-per-view, he’ll just say, ‘Yeah, go ahead, go home be with your kids, be with your family.’ That’s very important to him. He really considers his employees as human beings, and it’s very important to him that they get to spend as much time with their family, and they actually get to have their own lives outside of AEW.”

On praising Khan for letting talent do signings and comic cons: “Also, just the way he allows guys to do like signings, cons, and whatnot. You know, autograph appearances, sometimes appearances, even in indie shows, whatever may be. And he’s very generous and very giving and very fair. He just wants what’s best for the human being and the talent.”
