As previously noted, AEW President Tony Khan announced Kenny Omega vs. El Hijo del Vikingo in a “dream match” for the March 22nd 2023 edition of AEW Dynamite. Some fans commented on how they don’t know who El Hijo del Vikingo is which led to Twitter account @LuchaBlog tweeting the following…

“You’re not expected to know who everyone is, i know a lot of people and there still are others i’m learning about every day. but also if you have the time to type ‘who?’, and click post you also have the time to google. posting ‘who?’ is just waving a ‘I’m a goof, ignore me’ flag.”

Khan replied to @LuchaBlog’s tweet with the following…

“They aren’t doing it to be genuine. A large % of those replies aren’t from real people, a lot of them are accounts that upon inspection seem to only exist to question and rip AEW and most of their other content seems to be a cover story to justify the existence of these accounts.”

“One of my favorite bits they do is when they claim they used to love AEW in the old days, but not anymore, yet when you dig into their old posts, there’s nothing positive on AEW ever. Yes, I’m sure you all used to be great fans despite no evidence of that whatsoever.”
