Tony Khan is wearing a neck brace to Jaguars draft war room, because wrestling is real

The Jacksonville Jaguars are headed into the most important draft of the Doug Pederson era. After collapsing down the stretch and missing the playoffs, then losing Calvin Ridley to the rival Tennessee Titans, it’s all hands on deck for Jacksonville to make the correct pick in the NFL Draft. I’m sure this means that everyone, from Pederson to Chief Football Strategy Officer Tony Khan is locked in—hold on I’m getting some news…

If you don’t know, Tony Khan is also the owner of All Elite Wrestling, a professional wrestling company based out of, you guessed it, Jacksonville. Yesterday, to end the show, Khan was reinstating wrestler Jack Perry when he was viciously attacked by Perry, Matt and Nick Jackson (the Young Bucks) and Kazuchika Okada. It culminated in Khan taking a piledriver from the Young Bucks to end the show, and all the wrestlers coming out to check on him.

Now, as a true worker and boss, Khan isn’t letting this near fatal injury stop him from doing his job for the Jaguars. In a still photo, Khan is discussing the NFL Draft process…while wearing a neck brace.

For all you charlatans and fools who say wrestling is fake, explain this. Khan is still doing his job despite being brutally attacked, the epitome of a grinder. This isn’t the first time AEW has interacted with Jaguars brass either. In 2021 at AEW’s Double or Nothing, Chris Jericho was helped out in his Stadium Stampede Match by none other than then-Jaguars head coach Urban Meyer.

Prayers up to Tony Khan, we know how much a neck injury like that can stress you during this time.
