Not sure what the angle here is. Maybe to show AEW is paying their mid-carders enough money to justify a $10,000 fine? To lay the groundwork for a Jon Moxley, Jimmy Havoc, Joey Janela & Darby Allin anti-authority faction?
In all seriousness, I guess it’s to drive home that things like staple guns will only be used in their “Lights Out” unsanctioned matches, but still...
AEW Management has reprimanded Jimmy Havoc for utilizing a staple gun on Wednesday night in Indianapolis.— All Elite Wrestling (@AEWrestling) November 22, 2019
Havoc has been fined $10,000 for his actions, and he will face future $10,000 fines any time he uses the staple gun. pic.twitter.com/bqX7M1ys1p
... seems kind of silly and out-of-nowhere, doesn’t it?
I’m open to counter-arguments, though. Fire away. But know that if you fire away with a staple gun, it’ll cost ya.
