The incident happened during the AEW Dynamite broadcast, when Willy Urbina, unaware that he is living, copied the style of the AEW Women’s World Champion.
Willie Urbina, a Spanish-language commentator for wrestling company All Elite Wrestling, was fired after he mocked the Japanese accent of fighter Hikaru Shida during AEW Dynamite, which aired last Friday.
During a commercial break, presenter Alex Abrahants asked Urbina to translate the speech of the AEW Women’s World Champion, prompting him to mock Shida by stylizing her Asian accent, apparently unaware that her microphone was still on.
Dasha Corett and Rosa thunder also appeared to share the satirical laugh. Rosa told her partner to “shut up” joke about throwing the pen at him if he didn’t stop. “You speak English,” said Courette. “How bad you are.”
Then, American Wrestling Corporation president Tony Khan apologized to the Japanese wrestler and confirmed that the commentator, who previously also worked for Impact Wrestling, had been fired.
“I don’t think there is any excuse. I was not happy. Then I heard what was said, and given the other commentators who participated, to whom I apologized as well, I thought it was in the company’s best interest to make this decision. claimed Last Sunday, during a press conference after the Double or Nothing event.
