Kevin Kelly Plans Legal Action Against AEW – Kevin Kelly departed AEW in March after having been with them since June 2023. He says he was fired after going public on X about his grievances with Ian Riccaboni making disparaging comments about him and his frustrations with AEW’s handling of the situation.

On a recent episode of Wise Choices, Eric Bischoff asked Kelly if he plans to sue AEW.

“Yeah, of course,” Kelly responded.

Bischoff then asked Kelly about Tony Khan and the backstage environment in AEW.

“He’s got good people around him that he doesn’t utilize,” Kelly continued. “His vision of what wrestling is, for me, works best on a small scale. People always wonder why did PWG stay small? Well they knew, I think, they knew if they went big it would go stale fast.”

“(Tony Khan) wants to appeal to a niche audience with his vision of wrestling. But he thinks he can convince the people to watch on a grand scale. The other thing he’s done, he’s made himself the face of the company. He’s the one going now on TV interviews.”

Earlier in the conversation, Kelly spoke about the comments Riccaboni made on a discord server about Kelly promoting the film, “Sound of Freedom” during a broadcast. Kelly says the comments were defamatory and hurt his standing in the industry.

“It’s about child trafficking, how could anybody be against child trafficking?” Kelly said about the film. “Well apparently, it’s a QAnon conspiracy theory movie, Eric, I don’t know if you knew that.”

Bischoff then added, “Ian, if you’re listening to this, you’re fucking weird, and the people who think like you are fucking weird.”

Senior Director for The McCain Institute’s Combatting Human Trafficking Symposium Kristen Abrams has publicly criticized the film. She says it promotes “false narratives” of child trafficking and says it has done “more harm than good.”

“What all moviegoers – especially our nation’s top lawmakers – must know, however, is that the depictions of child trafficking and the rescue tactics celebrated in this film are highly sensationalized, misleading and do more harm than good,” she wrote in an article for USA Today.
