Here is your spoiler-free wrestling update for Monday, October 28th, 2019.

The big news today is regarding a t-shirt WWE designed and briefly had available in WWEShop.com for Jordan Myles. The t-shirt is being compared to blackface imagery similar to a sweater briefly marketed by Gucci recently. WWE issued a statement but opted not to apologize for the t-shirt design publicly.

Myles tagged Vince McMahon and Triple H in the following Tweet:

WWE issued a statement on the matter to media which reads:

“Albert Hardie Jr. (aka Jordan Myles) approved this t-shirt for sale. As always, we work collaboratively with all of our performers to develop logos and merchandise designs and get their input and approval before proceeding. This was the same process with Albert, and we responded swiftly once he later requested that the logo/t-shirt be redesigned. No t-shirts were sold.”

Several wrestlers and wrestling personalities have changed their Twitter profile picture to black and white and are using the hashtag #FortheCulture in protest.

RAW takes place tonight from St. Louis. Several matches and segments have been announced. We have the lineup below.

AEW has also announced matches and segments for Dynamite this week. The lineup for that show is below as well. The promotion also announced the signing of Anthony Ogogo over the weekend. Links to news about his signing is also below.
