AML Wrestling Explains Fan Being Escorted From Building During Tonight's Show
Fan escorted from building during a live wrestling event in Winston-Salem, NC.
"At 2 recent WWE shows, there were serious incidents involving fans that could have been very dangerous to their Superstars. On 2 different nights at 2 different shows, 2 different fans either entered the ring or jumped the guardrail and walked to the ring with one of their Superstars. There have been other incidents at independent wrestling shows where fans have both entered the ring as well as been struck by talent. These events forced the AML Wrestling Team to discuss how we could keep both our our talent and our fans safe. Those conversations led to us implementing a No Tolerance policy at all AML Wrestling events. When Caprice Coleman removed a fan's glasses from his face tonight, the fan pushed Caprice and AML Wrestling Security felt they had no choice but to ask the fan to leave the AML Arena. The fan fully cooperated and was a gentleman about the situation. I personally spoke to the fan, explained why we did what we did and apologized. He said he understood and said he will be back. I sincerely appreciate his cooperation and his support."
Myers continued, "My partner Brian Hawks and I also had a long discussion with the AML Wrestling Champion Caprice Coleman about what happened. While Caprice did not push or assault the fan in any way, he did remove the fans glasses from his face and he was wrong for doing so. Because of what happened, Caprice has been put on a 90-day probation but will remain the AML Wrestling Champion and will also continue to compete."
"Moving forward, our fans have our committment that the AML Wrestling Team is serious about keeping them safe at our events. However, we want our fans to know that we are also committed to keeping the AML Wrestling Stars safe. It's definitely a 2-way street."
