The debut event of Wrestling Entertainment Series (WES), the new promotion created by former WWE stars Akam and Rezar, the Authors of Pain, is already off to a rocky start.
The debut event was originally set for June 4, before being delayed until July 9, which led to several names pulling out of the show, including the advertised main event changing from former UFC star Alistair Overeem facing Adam Scherr to Overeem vs Moose. Earlier this week, CJ Perry (Lana) also pulled out of the event.
One man who was originally slated for the show was Matt Rehwoldt (Aiden English), who was set to provide commentary alongside Jonathan Coachman.
Rehwoldt reacted to an announcement for a meet and greet ahead of WES’ first show next week, detailing his issues he has faced with the company, and how they ‘wasted his time and money’.
So @wesofficialtv has cost me time and now cost me income. I was asked to be on this show but had a conflicting booking. I was told they really wanted me and would pay me upfront. So as they were former colleagues I took them at their word and passed on my other booking.
And since I have been completely ghosted. Zero communication. I have friends booked for the show and luckily some of them have been paid already but I doubt the show will happen. No travel, hotel, or any pertinent information has been shared with anyone I know.
Now I’m also out a weekend or income due to them. Part of that is on me as I chose to forgo my other date… But as I said I was told repeatedly that “for sure“ this was happening and they wanted me to be there. I would be wary of buying a ticket or the broadcast of this show.
