Observer / Fgure Four Online)
noted, the controversy surrounding Tony Khan and Big
Swole was a hot topic this weekend. It began with
an episode of Big Swoles Swole World
show that aired on Call-In. During the episode, the
former AEW star pointed to a lack of diversity in
the top spots of the company as one of the leading
factors in her departure in 2021.
Khan responded in a single tweet, pointed to how other
people of color have succeeded in AEW, and then said
he let Swoles contract expire because her wrestling
wasnt good enough.
top 2 @AEW execs are brown (me & Megha)!! Jade,
Bowens, Caster, Dante, Nyla, Isiah & Marq Quen
all won on tv this month. The TBS Title Tournament
has been very diverse. I let Swoles contract
expire as I felt her wrestling wasnt good enough.
#AEWRampage Street Fight TONIGHT!, he
continued to retweet posts throughout the day yesterday,
but it wasnt until this morning that she finally
posted a tweet of her own. In it, she implored the
wrestling community to listen intently to her podcast
because she believes her words are being misunderstood.
Sunday, take time to actually listen to the podcast
instead of reading headlines and excerpts. Understand
diversity isnt just a statistic, counting us/POC
isnt the mindset, she writes. Not
one time did I ever mention anyone as racist. Comprehension
AEW star that quickly reacted to the situation in
frustration was Lio Rush, who demanded that Tony Khan
apologize for his statement to Big Swole. But since
that transpired, it looks as though Rush had a heart-to-heart
with Tony Khan and has more optimism toward their
want this to be clear
I do not consider this
to be a diversity issue, and I at no point have thought
or said that AEW or Tony is racist, Lio Rush
writes. We can all clearly see that wrestling
as a whole and the AEW roster is perpetually diverse.
The issue at hand was a racial insensitivity issue.
spoken to Tony and Megah, we have discussed the endeavors
to further understand the struggles of the black community.
I am grateful to be able to understand more about
Tony and Megahs own ethnic backgrounds and glad
that they are actively seeking input from an African
American perspective. I am proud to work for a boss
and company that try to make these strides in social
equality, Rush continues. I look forward
to working with Tony to keep making steps towards
positive change. I pray that 2022 is a year of positive
change in all aspects. Happy New Year and GOD BLESS.
