Wrestling Entertainment Series (WES) Cancels Debut Event


It’s official – Wrestling Entertainment Series’ heavily plagued debut show has been canceled.

The newly-launched promotion took to Twitter earlier today and blamed its first show being canceled on the talent “not showing up.” As you’d expect, that didn’t go over well with many.

In its official statement, WES noted that they “still will be able to show [an event] in the near future.”

The statement goes on to say that all scheduled talent have been paid in full. They singled out Lina Fanene (Nia Jax), saying she was “paid her deposit as well while she changed her mind and did not want to show up and wrestle anymore.”

Surely, this is not the best way to go about things and likely isn’t going to do them any favors in the future.

You can check out the official statement, as well as some reactions from Adam Scherr, Chelsea Green, Matthew Rehwoldt, Lince Dorado, and others below:

“Dear fans and followers, unfortunately we will have to cancel the event scheduled for this Saturday at the Motorpoint Arena in Nottingham, England. We are deeply disappointed in the news that we have to share but with so many talent not showing up we will have no choice then to cancel the event.

“Our team worked so hard on this event day in and day out for the fans to come with a different type of wrestling event and believe that we still will be able to show that in the near future.

“We do want to say that all our talent that was scheduled have been paid in full and that Lina Fanene was paid her deposit as well while she changed her mind and did not want to show up and wrestle anymore. For now we will have to apologize for this, but we promise that it will not end here. See you soon!”
