The former WWE Cruiserweight Champion was recently let go from the global juggernaut months after requesting his release. Soon after that, it was announced that Kendrick would debut for Tony Khan's promotion on this week's episode of Dynamite, competing against Jon Moxley.
However, a few hours back, some of Brian Kendrick's old tweets resurfaced, in which he made some highly-controversial claims. Taking note of the social media uproar against Kendrick, AEW President Tony Khan announced that he's pulling the veteran performer from the Wednesday night show.
Brian Kendrick has now broken his silence regarding the controversy, apologizing for his past comments. He took to Twitter to write that he's aware of how much "embarrassment" his words might have caused. Furthermore, Kendrick accepted that he "crossed the line" with his views back then.
"I apologize for all the hurt and embarassment I have caused with my words. These are not my beliefs and never were beliefs of mine, and I crossed the line," tweeted Brian Kendrick.
