Big Swole slammed AEW’s lack of diversity, calling it the company’s largest fault aside from structure, to which Tony Khan responded. TK retaliated in way that sparked a lot of debate, and Lio Rush is furious about it. Big Swole’s contract expired, according to Tony Khan, because she wasn’t good enough.
Lio Rush responded with vehement retweet. He didn’t express exactly what was bothering him at first, but it was evident that the Man of the Hour has something to say.
If nobody says something, then I will. Because this is f*cked up and now I’m pissed.
