All Elite Wrestling‘s President/CEO Tony Khan has banned Hulk Hogan‘s ex-wife, Linda Hogan, over a racist tweet she made regarding the protests taking place over George Floyd’s death at the hands of a Minnesota police officer.
“You’ve now joined your husband in being banned from all AEW shows. Congratulations,” Khan replied to Linda Hogan’s now-deleted tweet. According to Wrestle Zone, Linda Hogan’s tweet said, “watching the looting , it’s all afro Americans, not sure how robbing and stealing set the record straight but if they want to be heard they need to be civilized.”
After hosting 2018’s All In wrestling event, AEW was officially founded in 2019 and features wrestlers Cody Rhodes, Matt Jackson, Nick Jackson and Kenny Omega as Executive Vice Presidents, with Brandi Rhodes as Chief Brand Officer. AEW would later secure a weekly televised program on TNT called Dynamite. The show now competes against WWE’s NXT on Wednesday nights.
Hulk Hogan was previously removed from WWE’s Hall of Fame after making racist comments in leaked audio from his sex tape. He would later be reinstated into the Hall of Fame after a three-year suspension.
