Brian Kendrick has been pulled from tonight’s edition of AEW Dynamite after past comments surfaced on Wednesday.

Earlier in the day, a pair of interviews involving Kendrick from 2011 and 2013 surfaced that dealt with conspiracy theories. Specifically, he shared his troubling viewpoints on the Holocaust and the murders at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Just an hour before showtime, AEW president Tony Khan issued a statement condemning the statements made by Kendrick in the past and calling them ‘abhorrent and offensive’.

Khan announced Kendrick would not be on tonight’s show, where he was scheduled to face Jon Moxley. The new opponent for Moxley will be Wheeler Yuta.

Kendrick has yet to comment on his past statements or his removal from AEW Dynamite tonight.
