Stokely Hathaway says he was the shoulder Tony Khan cried on after Shibata blew up his bathroom.
In a tweet on June 9, Hathaway shared pictures in which Tony Khan hugged him. The picture was seemingly taken during the Ring of Honor television tapings on June 4, and the segment in question aired on the June 8 episode of ROH TV. In the segment, Khan introduced Hathaway and Jerry Lynn as the new ROH Board of Directors.
Alongside the picture, Hathaway wrote that Khan cried on his shoulder when he told the AEW CEO that Katsuyori Shibata blew up his bathroom after Lynn left his office unlocked. Stokely noted that the incident marked Lynn's first strike already. He also stated that he was glad to be part of the team, and he would be on his best behavior.

Jerry’s first strike already. That’s crazy.
Glad to be part of the team! I will be on my best behavior. pic.twitter.com/9gDlfnwqdL
