It's been an entertaining 24 hours for Tony Khan.

The All Elite Wrestling owner and Jacksonville Jaguars executive showed up to the team's 2024 NFL draft room Thursday wearing a neck brace from a, well, nationally broadcast scuffle the night before.

During "AEW Dynamite" in Jacksonville on Wednesday, Khan came down to the ring to meet professional wrestler Jack Perry face-to-face. Perry greeted him with a punch to the gut and a piledriver move that took him out. Shad Khan, the Jaguars owner, ventured out to the ring to check on his son.

Tony Khan made sure to show off his battle scars Thursday night during the first round of the NFL draft.

Khan and the Jaguars were busy Thursday, selecting LSU receiver Brian Thomas Jr. with the No. 23 pick. They own two selections on Day 2 of the draft—a second-round pick (No. 48) and a third-rounder (No. 96).

We'll wait and see if Khan brings out the neck brace again Friday for the second and third rounds.
