Final Thoughts

When AEW started they touted themselves as a new, inclusive promotion. A place where women, the LGBTQ community, and people with disabilities could enjoy wrestling without the toxic trappings of the larger wrestling world. They touted themselves as a place for everyone.

Booking convicted, unrepentant rapist Mike Tyson is a slap in the face to women and victims of sexual violence.

When Tyson was introduced on Saturday my partner, who has relished the alternative to WWE programming that AEW provides, exclaimed “F— Mike Tyson. F— AEW for this.” and left the room. One-in-six women and one-in-thirty-three men have been or will be raped in their lifetime. Some of them are wrestling fans, and some of them won’t come back after this.

  1. If you feel that way, don’t do any more Primers for Torch or any more recaps. That would be the way to handle it. Remove yourself from writing about a product that you’re admittedly biased against. I’m a sports writer. If I’m biased against someone, I remove myself from covering them. Do the same. Back up your words. Don’t write about AEW anymore. Get Wade to allow someone else to do it. But don’t call something hypocritical and then say a single positive thing about Vince McMahon — Mr. “They’re Running Me Out of Business,” Mr. “It’s not Fair What WCW Is Doing To Me,” but when the shoe was on the other foot with him and the territories, it was fine.

    Don’t write AEW articles again, Joshua. Only fair thing to do if you believe what you’re saying.

    • What an odd foray into false equivalancy land for a sportswriter to take, especially considering your point was strong enough to completely disinclude the comparison of hiring a convicted rapist to complaining about perceived unfair business practices.

      In fact, it’s surprising to me that a sportswriter would completely miss the obvious and totally fair comparison of VINCE MCMAHON LITERALLY HIRING THE SAME CONVICTED RAPIST SVERAL TIMES IN THE PAST
