Jake Roberts Says Tony Khan Is Much Wiser Than Vince McMahon

AEW President Tony Khan is a passionate devotee of professional wrestling, but recently, his booking decisions and remarks have caused some fans to question his skills as President over the past year.

Vince McMahon is undoubtedly one of the biggest names in pro wrestling history, but his reputation for being a cold and inhumane boss is something that fans are more than aware of by then.

While speaking on The Snakepit Podcast, Jake Roberts talked about working with Vince McMahon and Tony Khan over the years. Roberts claimed that Tony Khan is much wiser than Vince McMahon was at his age and even now.

“Well, it wasn’t Vince’s kindness. Tony Khan is very kind. They’re completely two different animals. They really are. Vince was a guy that surrounded himself with people that knew what the fu** to do, whereas Tony Khan already knows what the fu** to do. He’s much wiser as far as the wrestling business goes, way more than Vince McMahon. He can quote you stuff from 30 years ago and give it to you move by move. He’s an amazing, amazing man. I don’t know that I’ve ever met anybody any smarter than him. I really don’t think I have.”

Jake Roberts also believes modern pro wrestling took out a big tradition that used to be the norm back in the day. Roberts will continue to share more thoughts about his larger-than-life experiences and fans can’t wait to hear them.
