All Elite Wrestling President & CEO Tony Khan is unhappy about an incident that occurred during Saturday’s All Out pay-per-view.
Ahead of Cody’s match with Shawn Spears, The American Nightmare was accompanied to the ring by Brandi Rhodes, MJF, Diamond Dallas Page and Pharaoh.
However, just as the awesome foursome were about to head out to meet Cody on the stage, loud pyro went off that scared poor old Pharaoh.
“I was here last year and I was nervous for Pharaoh last year and I was really nervous for Pharoah this year,” said Khan, who was asked about the incident during his post-All Out press conference.
“Pharoah’s fine and I’m glad Pharoah’s fine and no I would not ever do that again and Brandi was not thrilled with Cody.
“It was not my idea and no I would not have put Pharoah in that situation. I do really like having Pharoah at the shows and he’s a great dog.
“Shooting the pyro off with Pharoah out there was not something I would have done and was not happy about it and no, I don’t think Pharoah was happy about it either.”
Cody also addressed the issue on Twitter: “He’s fine. The mortars(noisy ones) shouldn’t have fired. He got spooked just like with thunder. I’m glad he saw me though. He’s excited to meet folks tomorrow and help out the PAWS shelter.”
