-- The CWE promotion in Canada has announced that Sid Vicious missed his flight to their show tonight and will not be appearing. They state that Sid told them he was sore from "setting up bleachers" last night. They booked Jimmy Jacobs as a last minute replacement, but will be offering refunds at the door. This is similar to what happened with Sid and the PWS promotion in New Jersey.
