PWInsider.com is reporting that the promotion, 5Star Wrestling, who was hosting a tournament featuring the best independent wrestlers in the world, may have cancelled the event. The 128-man tournament was set to kick-off on June 10th. Dan Hinkles, the promotion owner, may have had to cancel the tournament due to the recent incident in Manchester. But, Liverpool (where the tournament was going to be held) is 31 miles apart from Manchester.
Indie wrestlers, Will Ospreay & Rob Van Dam as well as YouTube personality Maffew commented on the news:
E-mail about shows being cancelled. Absolutely furious isn't even the words. Not for me but the for the others. Can't wait for the excuse

OH IT GETS WORSE 5 Star Wrestling's reason for all the UK shows being ''postponed'' is due to the Manchester bombings.
