AEW Star Calls On Tony Khan To Apologize For Big Swole Comments

AEW star Lio Rush wants his boss to apologize for comments made about former co-worker Big Swole.

As noted, Swole called out AEW for a lack of diversity and revealed how this led to her departure back in November. AEW President, CEO, General Manager & Head Of Creative Tony Khan responded in a tweet, pointed to how people of color have succeeded in AEW, and then said he let Swole's contract expire because her wrestling wasn't good enough.

In an update, Rush took to Twitter shortly after Khan's tweet and expressed frustration over the response.

"Im not cool with any of this shit to be honest," Rush wrote. He added in follow-up tweets, "Nope. Nah."

Rush continued to vent and said he will say something if no one else will because he's upset.

"If nobody says something, then I will. Because this is fucked up and now I'm pissed," he wrote.

Rush finally called on Khan to apologize.

"APOLOGIZE. @TonyKhan @AEW," Rush wrote.

Khan has been active on Twitter tonight but he has not responded to Rush's comments, or any of the backlash from fans on social media.
