He wrote, “I saw you’re doing a half hour head-to-head with us. I can’t wait to finally beat your main show head-to-head. It’s been a long time coming. See you next Friday for #AEWRampage on @AEWonTNT”

A fan responded and told Khan to worry about his own show.

Khan wrote back, “I already announced the #AEWRampage card for live next Friday, and it’s straight fire, chief.”
