AEW President Tony Khan has a lot of passion for professional wrestling, and no one doubts that whatsoever. However, his reputation has taken a hit over the past year or so.
All Elite Wrestling was plagued with injuries this year, with CM Punk, Bryan Danielson and Adam Cole all being on the shelf at one point or another. Not only that, but others such as Kris Statlander and Thunder Rosa are injured as well. Even Adam Page suffered a concussion during last week’s AEW Dynamite.
While speaking on his Hall of Fame podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer Booker T blasted AEW fans for treating pro wrestlers like toys and not caring about the fact that they are injured.
“The AEW fans, man. They don’t care about those guys in the ring. They do not care about those guys working. Those guys could — they’re nothing more than toys, video games for these guys.
“They don’t care about those guys in the ring.” “If they’re not out there getting a ‘This Is Awesome’ chant, they don’t give a damn about these guys going out there getting hurt. They really don’t.”
Adam Page said that he was doing fine after undergoing a medical evaluation. We will have to wait and see when The Millennial Cowboy will make his triumphant return to AEW television.
