There happens to be one fact common to nearly all celebrities the world over. That is, their progeny is prodigal, especially if we take into consideration their male offsprings. For them to be exceedingly extravagant, the younger generations find all the necessary resources and financial backing at their disposal. The ingredients that drive their lavishness at top gear are deeply rooted within their predecessors’ foundation. The more resourceful a celebrity is, the firmer the ground they are able to serve their children with. Take our famous American turned Pakistani, Shahid Khan, as the test case. A multi-billionaire himself, Shahid enjoys the fatherhood of his billionaire son, Tony Khan. Like father like son! Still, in his mid-thirties, the equally well-off son is famous for his passion in all sorts of American sports. Let’s dive into his super-active lifestyle that others love to follow.

With his diehard interest in the world of sports, he has hurled himself into the limelight with fame and fortune at his feet. He is a true sports buff, with his close affiliations with football clubs and a wrestling company of his own. He too, like his father, finds himself among the top ranking Forbes 500.
Tony’s Passion For Football
Tony Khan is quite closely associated with the American NFL team, the Jacksonville Jaguars. His father, Shahid Khan, purchased the team from Wayne Weaver for $770 Million.

Under Tony Khan’s guidance, the Jaguars created a Football Technology and Analytics group in 2012. In addition to being a valued asset to the coaching and scouting departments, the analytics team also explores new technology and its applications within all areas of the Jaguars organization.

Although these reports are yet to be confirmed, it is rumored to a great extent that Tony Khan put $100 Million of his own money into All Elite Wrestling.
AEW features a young and growing roster of male and female talent, all fueled by the mission of building an inclusive community through the power of wrestling.

He draws from his immense experience in management as a business executive of sports franchises.
