Jordan Myles Calls Out WWE Over Controversial T-Shirt Design

Jordan Myles (previously known as ACH) has called out Triple H and Vince McMahon over the controversial design of his merchandise.

Myles tagged both Triple H and Vince McMahon in the below Tweet critical of the design of his merchandise:

The design of the Jordan Myles t-shirt is drawing comparisons to a similarly controversial Gucci sweater. The company’s wool balaclava jumper was black in color and had a neck that could be pulled up over the person’s face which featured an image of red lips. Gucci discontinued the sweater after it was criticized for resembling blackface.

Jordan Myles won the NXT breakout tournament earlier this summer. The finals of the tournament were held before Takeover: Toronto II in August. Myles defeated Cameron Grimes in the finals. He would then lose an NXT Championship match to Adam Cole on a future episode of NXT.

Myles has been wrestling on the NXT live event schedule as of late and has been teaming with Kushida and Keith Lee on recent cards.

UPDATE: WWE has responded to Myles’ claim regarding the shirt and had this to say:

“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.”

Myles also responded to wrestling journalist David Bixenspan regarding whether he knew about the shirt for a period of time before coming forward with his displeasure:
