All Elite Wrestling has welcomed multiple legends into the promotion over the years, but they won’t hesitate to make a strong stance on one of them for saying something that is deemed racist.
Such was the case when president and CEO Tony Khan indicated Tuesday that Hulk Hogan and his ex-wife Linda have been banned from AEW shows indefinitely.
The reason why? Linda Hogan referenced the ongoing protests across the country in a despicable way, saying, “watching the looting , it’s all afro Americans, not sure how robbing and stealing set the record straight but if they want to be heard they need to be civilized.”
Khan offered a stern response:
WWE briefly distanced itself from Hulk Hogan in 2015 after he was heard making racist remarks on a sex tape.
It wasn’t until 2018 when the WWE reinstated Hulk to its hall of fame, and then he made his on-screen return when he hosted Crown Jewel that November.
