• AEW Edited Out A WWE Wrestler’s Name On Last Night’s Dynamite
As noted before, Rey Mysterio’s WWE contract had expired in July and he was approached by AEW for a potential deal as well. However, he has re-signed with WWE, which reportedly keeps him with the company for 3 more years.
Last night’s episode of Dynamite was taped on Thursday, August 13th. The show featured Eddie Kingston cutting a promo with Fenix, Pentagon, Butcher & Blade in the ring.
Fightful Select is reporting that Kingston mentioned Rey Mysterio in his promo, but that part was edited out and didn’t air on the show.
The reason behind it is unknown, but it’s likely that AEW doesn’t want to mention WWE wrestlers on TV, just like WWE doesn’t like to mention their wrestlers on its programming.
