Tony Khan: Jeff Hardy and John Moxley Situations are “Totally Different”

Tony Khan, CEO of AEW, was on the Swerve City Podcast discussing the difference between the Jon Moxley and the Jeff Hardy situation.

“With Jeff [Hardy], it’s totally different. The way it went down is totally different, and that’s why the statements and the way we handled the two things are different. In this case, I don’t think there is any comparison.”

Jeff Hardy was arrested on June 13th, 2022 for a DUI. AEW suspended Jeff without pay, after they were able to get in contact with him. They said Jeff could only come back once he gets better and gets the help he needs. There was some confusion about how Tony Khan handled this situation in comparison to what happened to Jon Moxley. In 2021, Moxley checked himself into rehab to help fight his addiction to alcohol, but he wasn’t suspended without pay. Here’s how Khan announced both situations via Twitter.

Khan noted that the two situations were different, and that’s why AEW handled them differently.

“It’s comparing apples and oranges when you mention the two things like they are the same”

Tony Khan was questioned about whether AEW has a wellness policy. He said that AEW does, but that most of the roster does drink responsibly. He even said he thinks that people do drink after the shows.

“As far as testing for alcohol after the shows, I think a lot of people drink after the show is over, and I don’t have a policy about that other than we ask people to be safe and responsible.”

Moreover, Tony says that they don’t test people for alcohol after the shows, even though he thinks people do drink. He just trusts them to be responsible and safe without having to put a rule in place. Tony tried to make it very clear that the two situations were contrasting. Jeff did an awful thing, and Moxley wanted help and checked himself into rehab. Jeff is getting treatment now, and Tony says that they will be supporting him through the process. Finally, AEW implementing a no drinking policy could help prevent further incidents, and could help people get the assistance they need faster.
