Cody Hall will not be appearing on DDT Pro Wrestling’s upcoming tour due to a recent social media post that drew a lot of criticism. Hall responded to a post by Cody Dickinson with a young Japanese girl that said “Blah blah coronavirus. Welcome to the yellow fever.”
While Cody Hall has since deleted his tweet, the DDT Pro Wrestling Japanese wrestling promotion issued the following statement:
Thank you for your support for DDT Pro-Wrestling.
Cody Hall has recently made an inappropriate comment on Twitter, and we have contacted him regarding this situation. Cody Hall has apologized to us, and has also suggested withdrawing himself from the remaining dates of his tour as well as relinquishing his Anytime Anywhere contract. In light of the gravity of his comments, we have agreed to all of his suggestions above.
All announced cards including Cody Hall will be changed, and the scheduled KO-D Tag Championship Match in Nagoya on February 24 will be canceled. All updated cards will be announced once they are decided.
DDT Pro-Wrestling will keep working to provide pro-wrestling content that can be enjoyed by the fans. We sincerely apologize to everyone that has been affected by this situation, as well as all of our fans.
Sincerely, DDT Pro-Wrestling
