"80 hours is nothing" - Tony Khan reveals the challenges he faces while running AEW
AEW president Tony Khan recently spoke about the challenges he faces while managing the company and also opened up about his demanding work schedule.
After the launch of All Elite Wrestling back in 2019, the company has continued to grow and with that, Khan's workload has reached new heights.
In an interview with Business Insider, Tony Khan talked about his schedule and stated that his father's work ethic has had a great influence on him.
"No one works harder than my dad, and I’m honestly very lucky because he’s the hardest-working person I’ve ever seen, and here I am, I get to work on the stuff I love. I’ve worked hard to get to a position where I can work on things I love all the time." (H/T Business Insider)
Khan also talked about how his schedule has become more demanding after the addition of Collision.
"80 hours is nothing. That was before ‘Collision.’ Before that, 80 hours was a good week. I’m way past that now." (H/T InsideTheRopes)
