Tony Khan is still booking AEW as he sees fit, but that is also causing a lot of problems. Fans and talent alike have noticed that the company’s women’s division isn’t getting much love at this point. There is now a call for that to change, but it isn’t pretty.

The drama surrounding AEW’s women’s division is an ongoing concern that has been gaining momentum. Although not a part of AEW herself, Lufisto remains a beloved and respected figure in the pro wrestling world. She has earned the trust of AEW talent, who confide in her about certain backstage stories.

Lufisto recently logged onto X and posted a series of messages that added more fuel to the already controversial fire within AEW’s women’s division. It appears that there is a lot more drama behind the scenes than fans may realize, with reports of meetings held to discuss “Britt Baker’s crew,” a topic she was tipped off about. The situation continues to escalate, leaving fans and wrestlers alike curious about the unfolding events in the division. Apparently, Tony Khan sent talent home who expressed concern to him about the women’s division.

Had a one hour phone call with a current AEW talent. The women who actually addressed the problems I did today were the ones sent home by Tony Khan. There was a meeting to shoot on Thunder Rosa that Khan attended. Before leaving, he reminded them that their segments were the lowest.


Lufisto went on to say a lot more with her posts. She said, “When some girls arranged a meeting to talk about Baker’s crew, one of them ran to Britt to let her know. The girls that wanted to address the problem were the ones punished. Things didn’t better. They got worst The legitimate wrestlers believe Tony doesn’t give a damn about women’s wrestling and feel like they are going back to the Divas era. Ask me who the f*ck am I. Tell me I’m irrelevant and that I’m doing this for attention. Call me a liar. Tell me to kill myself.”

Lufisto then finished up her statement by remarking that, “You keep on closing your eyes and supporting human beings with sh*tty behavior. With the messages of support and especially this phone call I received from AEW employees… This nobody did the right thing.”

In the end, there is fear that Tony Khan is going to take AEW’s women’s division back to the Divas Era. That might not be a great look for the company, and fans are certainly letting him know about it. Tribalism in pro wrestling has never been so rampant either, and obviously, fans are going to pick sides in a big way as well.
