Axl has dealt with both off their promoters in the past, and is more than happy to give his opinion on them. In addition Axl addresses the serious allegations made against him by another wrestler.

-- Indy wrestler Big Vito also posted the following rant on his Facebook page:

First off, I would like to thanks the fans for getting all the people who worked the show, back home safely. That was one of the best things I saw in wrestling in a long time. We are all people. We care about how your being entertained, you care about us. I know all who were involved were thankful. Christain York and my self were taken to a couples home, we slept on there couch and they took us thru the border. They were kind and cool people who helped out. No one is rich these days by no means, but when you open your home to strangers, you got more going on in your lives then just trying to get by, you have values. A good heart. Everyone can say what they want about Mark Livingston the promoter of the event. he mite have done this before, but he gave me no reason to miss trust him. people can say I told you so, but if a wife or husband cheats on you and they change there ways, you forgive them and move on. my dealings with the man were good, he booked me , he paid me, on his last show. So I came across for the second one. He paid me my deposit, my airline ticket, my hotel, shuttle, I arrived to the hotel as the surprise for the show, only a few knew I was gonna be there. The contact with him was that I had not eaten, he got me some food by his runner in my hotel, and then he told me that I was to be picked up at 7.30 to go to the building. I made my way in the back and saw some old friends, happy to see Jazz N Rodney Mack, Scorpio, Angel, guys I know for years along with the rest of the locker room. no one said anything until I asked where Rhino was, they told me he was sent home because he could not afford him on the 2nd show. Well he was being honest ok. I still have not seen @Mark Livingston, I saw Stephen DeAngelis, and all was good . We spoke about tonites events. Show goes on all is going good, I go out do my thing, then when I get back I hear the promoter had to go to the hospital, heart attack. I knew what that meant. I looked out at the match going on and it was a death match. I told Steve, to tell them to go home. he told them to. I saw those guys giving there all and cutting them selves up. Blood everywhere. I told them again to take it home. Match ends and then they were told in the ring what happened. They got on the mike and exposed the promoter. Upset fans and the boys. As they were speaking Steve told me to go and say something. I spoke to the fans and told them it was true but we needed help. I told them they mite of felt betrayed, but the Wrestlers were in another country and had no rides to get home or across the border to get home. I asked them for there help . The were responsive and opened the hearts. Steve then got on the mic and organized rides and made sure we all made it home. Some things were left and were taken that belonged to the promoter. Not a cool thing all the way around, you work you get paid. I learned that some had not received deposits, were promised money for there travel, I am not sure if guys got some money for the first show, was not my business. As we all parted ways it was a sour face on all. All points were looking good for the follow up show on the 31 of May. But, no one expected this. You dont leave people stranded in another country. let alone not pay them. karma comes back to people who do awful things, this affected peoples lives and families. 24 years in and this never happened before. I got thru it. To clear things up, Steve De Angelis bleeds wrestling. he would...
