Cody Hall is a wrestler that works for DDT. He made an extremely controversial comment on Twitter which has led to him being removed from DDT’s tour. On Twitter, he replied to a comment by saying, “Blah blah coronavirus.
Welcome to yellow fever." DDT Pro-Wrestling recently announced that Cody Hall will not be available for the remaining dates of the tour. This is a punishment for the nasty comment that he made. Reportedly, Hall is the one who wanted to be removed from the tour though.
We do not know the inside details, but the following is the announcement as released by DDT Pro-Wrestling. “Cody Hall has recently made an inappropriate comment on Twitter, and we have contacted him regarding this situation.
Cody Hall has apologized to us, and has also suggested withdrawing himself from the remaining dates of his tour as well as relinquishing his Anytime Anywhere contract. In light of the gravity of his comments, we have agreed to all of his suggestions above.
All announced cards including Cody Hall will be changed, and the scheduled KO-D Tag Championship Match in Nagoya on February 24 will be canceled. All updated cards will be announced once they are decided”. Most wrestling promotions do not tolerate any racial comments.
Even slightly racial comments are met by an extreme reaction. Wrestling promotions simply cannot afford to keep a wrestler that is known for making such comments.
