AEW Chief Brand Officer Brandi Rhodes issued a statement on Twitter yesterday stating that AEW would be “totally inclusive” regarding talent and fans.
Rhodes put a heavy emphasis on community ahead of Double or Nothing.
One specific way AEW is already practicing these guidelines is by hiring Nyla Rose, the first ever trans woman to sign with a major wrestling promotion.
A safe, inclusive, respectful and very cool environment will be central to everything we do at AEW. Be who you are, and come as you are. Because we're all going to come together as a community to change the world. #AEW (2/2)
