I haven't seen PWG outright ban those chants, they've just taken to Twitter to show their disgust for it.
There should be a level of self-responsibility that all fans should stick to, and when they don't I actually wouldn't have an issue with PWG evicting them. You may have a right to say something to a certain extent and "enjoy" yourself, but you also have the responsibility not to infringe on the enjoyment of others and heckling such as that is nothing more than atmosphere killing.
For the greater good, then, I wouldn't mind promotions evicting dumbasses if need be. Remember the 10-bell salute for Eddie Guerrero that was basically crapped on by one disrespectful fan? Did he have some
right to freedom of expression in that instance? I suppose, but aside from the disrespect for Eddie it pulled on the emotions of the wrestlers involved and those who knew Eddie personally. He royally screwed up the atmosphere that night and left a bitter taste in the wrestlers' minds. They won't remember the fan, specifically, but the arena will hold that memory for them. Perhaps it's insignificant in the point of one fan, but as soon as it grows to a group of them (or even into a majority) the wrestlers will slowly lose interest in competing in those environments because of the continual heckling. As Kid Kamikaze10 touched on, I wouldn't be surprised if Strong etc pulled out altogether from PWG if these chants continue.
In a nutshell, these guys are nothing more than real-life trolls. Now, this forum allows for differing opinions and debates but when it boils down to nothing more than condescending, dickish behaviour the poster gets banned. Why should a wrestling promotion be any different? Chant what you wish, but remember it's not just you out there. You may feel thrilled to have insulted someone after paying $XX (I don't know the pricing) to watch someone wrestle but someone else paid $XX, too, and they expect the same level of enjoyment as you. Don't kill it for them; if you do, you shouldn't be there. It's just called manners.

A better way of stating it would perhaps to either mention the close-mindedness of premature judgment or rather that the OP should base their judgment on a show that isn't one of PWG's usually weaker cards (I get that's what Seabs meant, but I just didn't like his wording
That said, BoLA, Card Subject To Change, DDT4 (I'm not too sure about this year, but we might be pleasantly surprised) and All-Star Weekend will most certainly deliver.
