Andrade tweeted (translated by Google), “For all the people of Mexico City I want to inform you that this Saturday, June 19, I WILL NOT APPEAR at said event, a good arrangement was not reached with this new company. I hope and see you soon I wish you a good start to the week.”
Here is what Rush had to say regarding this announcement:
Quedamos fuera del evento del 19 de junio con @FederacionW por problemas de logística.
Les deseamos toda la suerte del mundo a Federación Wrestling.@KennyKingPb2 @dragonlee95 #Bestiadelring #ToroblancoRush pic.twitter.com/LcZ4zF8wBO

Rush’s announcement read (again, translated by Google), “L.F.I. We are of the event on June 19 with @FederacionW due to logistical problems. We wish Federation Wrestling all the luck in the world.”
The event was scheduled to be headlined by Andrade, Bestia, Rush and a surprise partner against the Briscoes, Matt Taven and PJ Black. Dragon Lee was set for a match alongside Bandido against Fénix and Pénta El Zero M. Kenny King was set for the show’s one-night tournament.
Also, Lucha Libre reporter Rob Viper heard rumors regarding the show, stating there’s a good chance that it may be cancelled altogether.
I'm hearing the entire Federacion event will be cancelled tomorrow. Wednesday at latest. I'm skeptical… and it makes no sense to do the show without everyone who has dropped off (more coming)… but that's what I'm told. No show.
