WrestleCon is the major wrestling convention WrestleMania weekend outside of the WWE. Many major Superstars will be appearing at this event including talent from the Dragon Gate promotion.
However, Visa issues will be keeping former WWE Cruiserweight Champion, Neville, now known as PAC away from the major wrestling convention.
WrestleCon posted this message on Twitter announcing the sad news, but assured fans that this had nothing to do with PAC’s eventual work with All Elite Wrestling, beginning this may with Double Or Nothing:
“We regret to inform you that PAC will not be at WrestleCon. We worked diligently over the past several months with our attorneys to ensure that he successfully received a Visa to travel into the United States. Our Visa application was filed in a timely manner, all fees were paid to attorneys, and all required information was disclosed to government officials. Our attorneys were confident there would be no issue and based on their experience and expectation, we advertised PAC on the assumption there would be no problem obtaining a Visa. However, after exhausting all efforts, we were unable to provide PAC the appropriate Visa to travel and work in the United States. We understand and share your disappointment of this unanticipated outcome, as does PAC.
Further, we would like to clarify that in no way will this unfortunate incident have any impact on his future with AEW. This issue is isolated to WrestleCon only.
Over the next few days, we will issue refunds on all photo ops and autographs that were purchased related to PAC’s appearance at the Convention. We will also replace graphics that featured him, so we appreciate your patience during these updates.”
