Indie talent Dylan Bostic recently took to Twitter and made some claims towards AEW that when he used to work for them back in 2019 during the company’s early episodes of Dynamite, he was disrespected by two of the backstage producers and treated as if he shouldn’t be there. Bostic also said that his pay was cut 60% and he was treated like s**t.
This is what Dylan Bostic said:
“In 2019 I was at the first-ever AEW Taping in Washington DC. That night I didn’t do anything other than hang out. I was paid $200. I was then at the tapings in Indianapolis and Champagne. In Indianapolis, I walked Darby out in a body bag on TV and I also let all of the extras barrow my clothes to walk Darby out so AEW wouldn’t have to go out and buy everyone clothes. In Champaign, I had to take a bunch of bumps before the show.
I was paid $80 for each night in Indianapolis and Champaign. They cut the pay $120 for each night with no warning or communication to me. In Champaign, I was disrespected by two of the backstage producers and treated as if I shouldn’t be there. I don’t care about the money I care more about the lack of respect and professionalism. If I wasn’t invited to be there by someone I really respect and love as a person I would have stuck up for myself but I felt like I couldn’t. You can paint me out to be the bad guy but I was the one that remained professional even though my wages were cut 60% and I was treated like s**t. WHAT WOULD YOU DO?”
Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D would then respond to Bostic’s tweet:
“What a sick human to post this (and tag the people you did) today. The wrestling world is mourning the loss of an amazing friend, husband, and father and your bitching about $120?” “If you were so concerned about professionalism why did you show up in ripped jeans and a t-shirt?”
There is no word yet on if the claims by Bostic are true or not but he has been getting a lot of heat on Twitter as everyone in AEW as well as the world of pro wrestling is mourning the loss of AEW’s Jon Huber (A.K.A Brodie Lee and Luke Harper).
In Bostic’s tweet, he tagged Jim Cornette, celebrity Stelio Savante and Huffington Post columnist John White. As of this writing, Dylan Bostic deleted his tweet.
