If you're an AEW wrestler and you posted something silly on social media, Bryan Danielson is probably going to fine you.
This week, on Fightful's The Hump, Sean Ross Sapp stated that Danielson and the rest of AEW's disciplinary committee were fining company personnel based on their social media conduct. SRS commented that he knew or at least one or two people who'd felt the American Dragon's wrath in this regard.
There is currently no word on which AEW stars have been issued such fines, though the company isn't exactly short of wrestlers who have been seen tweeting or liking tweets critical of AEW's creative direction.
Most major companies have social media policies governing personnel conduct. It seems AEW is no different.
Last month, it was reported that Danielson was part of the disciplinary committee that ultimately decided CM Punk should be fired from AEW. Bryan was placed in this role as he is seen as an "appropriate moral compass who exemplifies objectivity."
On 27 November, Bryan tweeted the following, having seemingly said similar at a talent meeting several months prior:
My dad always told me, “The right thing is often the hardest thing to do.” It won’t always make the most money. It won’t always be the most popular. But it’s still the right thing. #AEW
