Why Hogan is banned from AEW; TNT Title match changed Submitted by Aaron Rift on 06/05/2020 at 08:06 AM
- It was revealed by AEW President Tony Khan earlier this week that Hulk Hogan was banned from attending the company's events. The reason for the ban is due to Hogan's leaked sex tape where used the N-Word. Khan explained why he doesn't want any associate with Hogan:
"What he said on the tape, long before George Floyd, Iíve told people I canít work with Hulk Hogan. How can I look my Black friends, football players, employees in the face or myself in the mirror after the things he said and has never given an adequate apology for. He canít blame what he said on tape on the dangers of social media." (quote courtesy of F4WOnline.com)
- Cody Rhodes is scheduled to face Private Partyís Marq Quen for the TNT Title on next week's edition of AEW Dynamite. Cody was originally planned to face Fenix but Fenix isn't 100% recovered from his injury so AEW changed plans. Edits were made in post-production (this week's show was taped last week) but there was one instance where Fenix's name was still mentioned.
We worked hard in post, I thought weíd caught everything, the mention of Fenix slipped by a few of us in the final pass after a long week, + we thought we had the Fyter time correct, it was right on TSN I guess but not on TNT, we caught it today but didnít get it changed in time.
