Jake Hager has been “suspended” in storyline for hitting an official after his match against Cody Rhodes at last night’s Fyter Fest.
All Elite Wrestling announced the following via Twitter:
AEW has suspended @RealJakeHager for 10 days and fined him an undisclosed amount for striking an official following his TNT Championship match with @CodyRhodes at Fyter Fest
The finish of the match saw Rhodes pickup a sneaky win after countering a chokehold from Hager into a pin. The closing moments also featured some interference from both Dustin Rhodes and Arn Anderson.
Suffice it to say, Hager was not pleased and decked referee Mike Posey, which led to the entire officiating crew and other medical personnel rushing to Posey’s aid.
