Josh Barnett asks AEW to “stop doing damage control”

Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Josh Barnett is now a well-known figure in the pro-wrestling industry. Barnett who wrestles occasionally and used to do commentary work for NJPW on AXS TV alongside Jim Ross had quite a few things to say about the violent chair shot to the head at AEW’s Fyter Fest.

Barnett asked the company to stop saying that the spot was gimmicked and stop doing damage control of any sort in general. He went on to say that the only damage was in the ring and it worked.

Barnett even stated that Cody is a professional and that he’s capable of making his own decisions and that AEW’s damage control is “throwing water on his heat”.

Furthermore, when a fan asked Barnett if he’d ever work in All Elite Wrestling, his answer was pretty straight forward:

  • Soulshroude

    Damaged control after the fact, yes. Train talent how to pull of and how to take “chair shots”? ABSOLUTELY!!!
