Cody Hall, Scott Hall’s son is following in his father’s footsteps. He hasn’t reached the same heights as his Bad Guy dad, but he’s doing what he can. One recent social media post put a big halt in his plans.
Hall recently tweeted out: “Blah blah coronavirus. Welcome to the yellow fever.” The coronavirus is rapidly becoming an epidemic and a huge issue in China and the rest of the world is on guard as well. This was not a sensitive tweet at all and DDT Pro didn’t appreciate it at all.
DDT Pro sent out a public statement where they distanced themselves from Cody Hall’s comments. The Japanese pro wrestling company proceeded to pull Cody Hall from all of their future events as well as his “Anytime Anywhere contract.”
Cody Hall has recently made an inappropriate comment on Twitter, and we have contacted him regarding this situation. Cody Hall has apologized to us, and has also suggested withdrawing himself from the remaining dates of his tour as well as relinquishing his Anytime Anywhere contract. In light of the gravity of his comments, we have agreed to all of his suggestions above.
All announced cards including Cody Hall will be changed, and the scheduled KO-D Tag Championship Match in Nagoya on February 24 will be canceled. All updated cards will be announced once they are decided.
DDT Pro-Wrestling will keep working to provide pro-wrestling content that can be enjoyed by the fans. We sincerely apologize to everyone that has been affected by this situation, as well as all of our fans.
Cody Hall released a public apology which you can find below. It seems to be too little too late in this instance.
