The Supreme Court’s ruling to overturn Roe v. Wade has many scratching their heads. This has even bled over to the wrestling industry, as many wrestlers are voicing their opinions on the controversial decision. As major corporations are providing aid to those left with no choice but to travel out of state to receive safe abortions, AEW may not be ready to do the same.

During last night’s media scrum for AEW X NJPW: Forbidden Door PPV, AEW President Tony Khan was asked whether AEW would cover the cost of those who want to travel out of state to receive an abortion.

Hasn’t come up, I don’t know. Honestly, since last Friday, we’ve been working on Forbidden Door almost non-stop … that situation’s never come up, so I can’t say.

AEW’s dance card has been full recently, thanks not just to the recent PPV, but also to juggling many injuries. AEW has marketed itself as a progressive company for the longest time, with LGTBQ stars such as Anthony Bowens and Sonny Kiss being marketed on television. As the Supreme Court’s decision continues to cause discussions and debates, it might not be long until AEW has to make a choice about how they will approach this controversial topic.
