Tony Khan Says Both Hulk & Linda Hogan Are Banned From AEW Events

Hulk and Linda Hogan aren't going to be showing up on AEW events any time soon, or ever for that matter.

Responding to a tweet where Linda 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," Khan stated that she joined Hulk in being banned from all AEW shows. Linda's tweet was a response to the ongoing protests due to the death of George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man who died shortly after Derek Chauvin, a white officer in Minneapolis, arrested him and pressed his knee on Floyd's neck for several minutes.

Khan never mentioned why Hulk is banned, but tapes of Hulk using racist language were leaked years ago, leading WWE to release him from his contract. Hulk was brought back into the fold in July 2018, showing up at Extreme Rules to issue an apology to the WWE locker room. Hulk officially returned to WWE television this past November, serving as the host of Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia. 

Just a couple of days before the tweet, Khan tweeted "Black Lives Matter" and replied to someone saying that all lives matter.

AEW World Tag Team Champion Hangman Page also recently commented on WWE wrestler Jaxson Ryker's tweet in support of President Donald Trump regarding his comments on the protests.
