Backstage news on what AEW tells talent not to say or do on TV

Saraya, Toni Storm and Ruby Soho, collectively known as The Outcasts, pulled no punches in their promo segment for this week’s “AEW Dynamite” and insulted both the AEW locker room and the crowd by making AEW an uninhabitable place to thrive. in.

“You should kiss the ground we walk on. Without us, there would be no AEW women’s division,” Saraya said in the promo.

At the time, the Winnipeg crowd greeted The Outcasts with loud cheers, prompting Saraya to call them “a bunch of neckbeard smelly tw*ts”.

Using the word “tw*t” got Saraya in hot water with AEW management. Shortly after Wednesday’s performance Saraya tweeted that she was “fined for saying Tw*t on live TV”. something that fans thought was the outcome of the story. However, according to Fightful Select, Saraya was legally fined, with the proceeds going to the “AEW Together” projects.

The report added that Saraya “privately apologized” to AEW higher-ups, and a mass email was sent to the talent stating that Saraya had been “fined for swearing and using the middle finger without notifying the segment coach.” The name of the coach/producer of the segment was not mentioned in the report.

The email also prompted AEW talent to desist from “turning away audience members and body shaming the crowd” – behavior that has been commonly associated with AEW World Champion MJF in recent years.

While Fightful didn’t specify if the recent incident triggered AEW’s stricter profanity policy, it’s worth pointing out that MJF was heavily criticized on social media for pouring a glass of water on a young fan at AEW Revolution. AEW President Tony Khan later revealed that he had a “serious discussion” with MJF about the incident and made it clear that such behavior “will not be taken lightly” going forward.
