NEW YORK - In a shocking move at last nights Friday Night Rampage in England, Ace King was suspended from the EWC without pay and fined.
As we came back from commercial break, Ace King was spotted backstage in AC Delaney's office. AC began to rip into Ace King for comments he made on EWCTV, which have since been removed by the Network. AC proceeded to tell the X-Division Champion that he was lucky to not be fired on the spot. Ace King was fined $300,000.00 and suspended from now until after FN'R 470.
This means Ace King would miss out on bookings from 4 potential events, while also losing out on his X-Division and Tag Team Championship bonus money. Added to this, Ace King will also perform 40 hours of community service for the New York City Alliance Against Sexual Assault.
President Mac also released a statement this afternoon regarding the suspension:
We have met with Ace King, and spoken to him several times since the incident. We believe he is sincere in his apology and that he is committed to making the necessary changes while also giving back to the community. We feel this punishment is sufficient, as we have all come to know and respect Ace King over the years and know this slip was very out of character for him. At the same time, we hold our Roster and especially our Champions to high standards and his words could not go unpunished. We want to thank you all for your continued support of the EWC, and understanding of the situation that it took time for us to review and take action. We will work hard to make sure things like this will not happen again. We also appreciate Ace King's cooperation throughout all of this as we now look towards moving forward from this, and grow from this. Thank you
