AEW President and CEO Tony Khan has addressed his social media activity and if he should slow down to just focus on the shows.

Earlier this year, Tony Khan drew criticism towards his Twitter activity after he took a shot at Jinder Mahal’s booking heading into his World Heavyweight Title match against Seth Rollins in WWE.
This isn’t the first time and likely will not be the last that Khan has garnered controversy from social media exchanges.

Speaking with Adrian Hernandez on Radio Row in Las Vegas during Super Bowl weekend, Tony Khan was asked about people saying he should slow down with the tweets and just focus on the show. He answered:
“I think we’ve been able to promote the show and build engagement. Also, the company has a great presence and we have a great connection with the fans.”
“So it’s a good question, but I think we’ve been able to build real engagement at times.”
“I think there’s tangible proof of that in our huge TV ratings and the fact that you know, I believe three out of the last four weeks, Wednesday Night Dynamite has beat the NBA on ESPN straight up.”
“We’ve had great, great success connecting with our fans, so I think what we’ve got going works really well.”

On the February 7 episode of AEW Dynamite, Tony Khan appeared to announce AEW Big Business on March 13 at the TD Garden in Boston. Many have speculated that this will be the debut of Mercedes Mone.
Another major free agent is now expected to sign with AEW as well, which you can read at this link.
