A Vanguard Championship Wrestling (indie federation) promoter recently took to Facebook, reacting to Scott Hall’s claims that they falsely advertised him for their show next month. The company said that a video of Scott Hall promoting the event was posted just last month. Hall tweeted on Friday, telling Vanguard Championship Wrestling to “please stop advertising me for an appearance you never contacted me about. I will NOT be at the VCW event on June 15 th . Thanks.” The tweet has since been deleted.
VCW posted the following to their Facebook account, saying that they have a signed commitment from Hall to appear at the event and even did a promotional video that was released a month ago.
Hall has yet to respond as of this writing. VCW’s statement reads as follows,
Scott Hall has cancelled his appearance with VCW on June 15th. Due to circumstances beyond our control, Scott Hall took another booking the same date. After he posted public messages on Twitter, VCW Management reached out to Hall to remind him that he had made a commitment to us to appear in Norfolk, to make up for a prior cancelled appearance for health reasons in July of 2017. This commitment is in writing, with specific terms.
Hall had also announced his appearance in a promotional video that was published one month ago.
“It is unfortunate that anyone would conduct business in this manner in 2019”, said VCW Promoter Travis Bradshaw. “It is our priority to provide what we advertise, and our fans deserve better from the talent that commit to appear”. Tweets that alleged that VCW had advertised without making contact have since been removed.
Anyone that has pre-purchased tickets and autograph appearances in advance will be contacted and granted a full refund on their autograph packages, and an optional refund on their ticket to the event. We are working diligently to find a suitable replacement, but rest assured the event will go on. VCW fans can expect the same action-packed card that is being advertised!
