Tony Khan Apologized To Hikaru Shida After Willie Urbina Incident


AEW fired Spanish broadcaster Willie Urbina after he mocked the accent of former AEW Women’s Champion Hikaru Shida on commentary for last Friday’s Dynamite.

AEW President Tony Khan talked about this during the post-Double or Nothing media scrum: 

I didn’t think there was any excuse. I was not happy. Afterwards, I heard what was said and having our commentators involved with what was said about her, who I also apologized to, I thought it was best for the company to make this decision.

H/T to Fightful
