AEW Founder and President Tony Khan is the most loved billionaire, ranking much higher than WWE’s Vince McMahon

Money.com released the following information:

AEW owner Tony Khan has been crowned the world’s ‘most loved’ billionaire according to the 2021 Beloved Billionaire 100 from money.co.uk.

The study looked at over 1,500 of the worlds richest people, analyzing over 2 billion internet searches and more than 100,000 social media posts to find the most popular billionaire business tycoons.

The super-wealthy business leaders were then given a ranking based on the number of annual Google searches they received, combined with the % of social media posts about them that were positive.

The comprehensive study found  AEW’s Tony Khan to be the world’s ‘most loved’ billionaire, with a massive 38% of all social media mentions of the 38 year old sport mogul being overtly positive, more than any other person on the list, beating household names including Bill Gates, Elon Musk, Warren Buffett, Jeff Bezos and WWE rival Vince McMahon who placed 7th on the list with a score of just 23%. 

Key findings of the study were:

  • Tony Khan is the world’s most loved billionaire with 38% of all mentions of him being positive
  • Elon Musk is the world’s most searched billionaire with 64 million searches a year
  • Vince McMahon is the billionaire with the highest wealth-to-popularity ratio ranking 8th overall despite being worth ‘just’ $2.2bn and a Forbes ranking of 1417
