AEW was forced to throw out a member of their crowd at AEW Dynamite after the so-called fan held up a transphobic sign directed at Nyla Rose.
On Dynamite, Nyla Rose faced off with Ruby Soho in the semi-final of the TBS title tournament where Soho vanquished Rose to progress to the final where she will face either Thunder Rosa or Jade Cargill to be the inaugural TBS Champion.
However, while Nyla Rose was making her entrance on Wednesday’s show, a sign could be seen directed at Rose which misgendered her. The Native Beast proved unflappable as she greeted the person holding the sign with her social finger before entering the ring.
Nyla Rose’s wife took to social media to make a member of AEW’s security team aware of the sign as well as praising her wife for her strength.

This is not the first time AEW has seen issues like this with some people in their crowd. The Acclaimed’s Anthony Bowens recently commented after he was subject to a vile homophobic slur being shouted at him during a match.
