For about a month, AEW Commentator Excalibur was reportedly told to not report to work and to just stay home due to a comment he made in a PWG Show with WWE Star Kevin Owens about a decade or two ago.
Both Excalibur and Owens reportedly used racial slurs during a segment, which resurfaced back again this past July and have already apologized for those comments.
Last night’s AEW TV Tapings saw AEW Commentator Excalibur make his much-anticipated return to continue his commentary duties for next Tuesday’s episode of Dark. Following AEW Dark’s TV Tapings, Excalibur did not remain in the commentary booth for AEW Dynamite’s tapings as commentary was done by Jim Ross, Tony Schiavone and “Le Champion” Chris Jericho.
