Powerhouse Hobbs issued the following statement:
“I’ve been featured in some heavy ass spots since being signed to AEW as well as other minorities.
Now TK has put me in spots at the right time that meant something
(Punk,Christian Cage,Brian Cage and Hangman and especially running in and saving Mox)
This company has been there since the passing of my Mother
Cody and QT played tremendous part in getting me signed
Lastly if you have a issue with someone pick up the phone.”
