Jimmy Havoc explains ‘bar fight’ with Excalibur

Jimmy Havoc and Excalibur reportedly got involved in a bar fight during AEW Full Gear weekend. Excalibur apparently put him in a headlock. All of this happened in front of Tony Khan, who eventually spoke about the incident.



Havoc spoke to Wrestling Inc, where he provided an explanation regarding his confrontation with Excalibur. Apparently, it was just a bit of roughhousing. He said it was blown out of proportion.

“The report that got put out was totally not what happened at all. I’m not gonna say exactly what happened, but the truth was there was one punch thrown and a sleeper hold. And it’s not in the order that the press decided to report it as happening and that’s all I’m gonna say.”

“The dirt sheets decided to run with a story that was 50 percent true. It was all sorted out and there’s no animosity. We were all drinking and how many times have you been out with your mates and something happens?”

“The thing that upset me the most was how many people wanted me fired even though the boss [Tony Khan] was out at the bar where it f*cking happened. So obviously, it wasn’t as bad as everyone’s making it out.”

“I spoke to Tony right away and no one who knows what happened actually cares. So, anyone who wants to make a big deal about it is mainly people who didn’t like me anyway, which is quite a numerous list of people [laughs]. Anytime something like that happens, people always jump on it and call for my head. It is what it is but I’m used to dealing with that kind of sh*t now.”

Thankfully, both of them thought nothing of the incident. Both are integral parts of All Elite Wrestling and they will no doubt play a role in AEW’s success in 2020.
