AEW Cancelled original plans to dress up as Squid Game. This week AEW had a Halloween themed match on the AEW Dynamite show. In which The Elite (Adam Cole, Kenny Omega & Young Bucks) were facing The Dark Order members (John Silver, Colt Cabana, Stu Grayson and Evil Uno). The match was the main event of the show and had a lot of great and funny spots in it.
Wrestlers also dressed as different, different characters for this Halloween themed match. The Elite dressed as Ghostbusters but; the recent report from Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful Select says that these weren’t original plans for The Elite. According to Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful Select:
“The Elite initially planned on having an entrance based around the popular Squid Game series on Netflix, but that someone at either TNT or WarnerMedia put a stop to it. It’s unclear why the idea was shot down.”
It’s unclear why TNT or Warner Media shut down the idea of The Elite dressing up as Squid Game characters for their entrance on AEW Dynamite show. But this is the reason why The Elite was dressed as Ghostbusters instead of Squid Game characters.
