AEW fans are very passionate about the company, but it can turn ugly very quickly as some fans defend the company no matter what, even if they become toxic in the process. In yet another instance, Ice Cube’s son O’Shea Jackson Jr. got a ton of hate after he expressed his disdain for AEW’s miserable faceless fans.

While speaking to Chris Van Vliet, Ice Cube’s son O’Shea Jackson Jr. discussed his interactions with AEW fans on social media, where he expressed frustration with fans who dismiss others for not being as familiar with both wrestling worlds.

Jackson Jr. emphasized the need for better storytelling and character backgrounds to engage a wider audience. Jackson highlighted the importance of providing context and personal narratives, comparing it to UFC’s approach. He then blasted AEW’s miserable faceless fans for attacking him all the time.

“I don’t mean to. But like, the issue I have is okay for people who don’t watch anything besides the two. Whether you’re you’re younger or older stuck in your ways, if I’m watching someone on AEW, and I as who is this guy? I don’t need you to tell me I’m not a real wrestling fan to tell me how could you not know such and such? Who gives a damn? Like I need you to inform me bro. Or at least have your programme and in a way to let people know why you should love this dude, why you should f*ck with this guy.”

”That’s something that I feel like is missing. Konnan, when I was on his podcast he brought up when you watch UFC and they give you a little backstory about this dude backstory about that dude. What this guy’s had to go through what he’s done and vice versa. And then they put them in the room and they cuss each other out. And then by watching those videos you’ve picked a side us of who you’re with. What they have is this this nice group of people who watch all of these wrestling shows and they’re already in the know so when they see these names together, it is a dream match for them. But you’re trying to sell this to American television baby.”

”You got to move that up a little bit, you got to give me some cinema to follow, something to hold on to besides the announced team running down a list for me while there’s dudes walking down the ramp. And I feel like that’s missing it when you are trying to get involved and trying to really give something a chance and when you question it even a little bit and you get 80 no faced accounts coming at you at any given time you like me f*ck this noise bro. I’m gonna cool off of it if y’all like it I don’t.

Despite his critique, he clarified that he has friends in AEW, mentioning conversations with Swerve, concerns for Dante Martin’s injury, and his continued support for certain talents like Aleister Black and Andrade. Jackson expressed dislike for certain AEW fans who attack critics online, emphasizing his appreciation for specific wrestlers while disliking the behavior of some vocal fans.

I have people over there that are that I’m cool with you know I talked to Swerve at least once every week or so you know just talking about wrestling talking about stuff that’s going on how Daniel Garcia almost killed and when that announce table. But you know that type of stuff. Dante Martin when he broke his foot after a while I asked about him got his Twitter page DM them and was like Yo, you know, are you alright? What’s your recovery looking like? Told him how explosive I think he is and there’s people over there obviously all my old WWE people that I still care about.”

Anyone who follows me knows when Aleister Black made the move over and became Malakai, I was crushed. I thought we were idiots to let that guy go. Aleister, I was such a huge fan of him during his NXT and I was waiting for his push on the main roster. Same thing with Andrade now and Andrade is back. When I see things like the LWO I was pissed that Andrade is not in it. When I see things like Judgement Day. I’m pissed. Aleister Black isn’t there. So now I still watch those guys. Adam Copeland as well over there in AEW. I don’t hate AEW, I hate their miserable faceless fans who got not even a picture of themselves and have the nerve to try to stand on their words. I hate your guts.”


An AEW fan responded to O’Shea’s interview on Twitter and gave a ton of hate to Ice Cube’s son. This prompted a response from Ice Cube himself, who had enough.

“Man, I never wished @icecube pulled out more in my life than when this sped was conceived.”

“F*ck yo wishes, b**** ass Drughead.”

This is not the first time that O’Shea Jackson Jr. tweeted out his frustrations about AEW. Nevertheless, only time will tell if the tribalism prevalent in professional wrestling will eventually stop.
