AEW COO Criticizes Venue Quality After AEW Collision Event

AEW is well-known for providing top-quality entertainment to its dedicated fan base, and the recent June 8th edition of AEW Collision was no exception. However, the event, which took place at the Mid-America Center in Council Bluffs, Iowa, unexpectedly stirred up some controversy.

Following the show, AEW Chief Operating Officer Kosha Irby took to social media to express his thoughts on the venue. While he commended the fans and the city itself, Irby did not shy away from criticizing the Mid-America Center, labeling it as “subpar.”

One fan pointed out what they believed to be a mistake in Irby’s statement, suggesting that he meant to say “superb” instead of “subpar.” Irby responded firmly, confirming that his initial comment was intentional. Despite the backlash, the June 8th episode of AEW Collision managed to attract 348,000 viewers, highlighting AEW’s ability to draw a strong audience.

The reason behind Irby’s negative assessment of the venue remains unclear, but his candid remarks have sparked conversations among fans and onlookers. While fans speculate about the circumstances that led to Irby’s criticism, one thing is certain – AEW remains focused on delivering thrilling in-ring action, even if its top executives are not afraid to voice their opinions.
