WWE Pulls Talent From UK Events


Two promotions in the United Kingdom recently announced some changes to their upcoming events that are scheduled to air on FloSlam. It appears that WWE is setting guidelines for who their contracted UK talent is allowed to work for.

International Pro Wrestling: United Kingdom, who will be airing their supershow on FloSlam live on Sunday, announced on their Facebook page that Pete Dunne, who worked in the finals of the WWE UK tournament, will now wrestle Tom Dawkins in a dark match, which means that the match will not air on FloSlam. Originally, Dunne was scheduled to face Matt Riddle. Now, Riddle will wrestle Ryan Smile instead. Joseph Conners has been pulled from the show entirely.

The promotion wrote,”Unfortunately in the early hours of this morning we learnt that due to contractual obligations with the WWE, certain wrestlers will be unable to appear on our FloSlam live broadcast this Sunday, namely in this instance, Pete Dunne and Joseph Conners.”

Also, Lucha Forever announced via Twitter that the main event of their event on April 17th would now be Shane Strickland vs. Travis Banks after Strickland had been scheduled to face Dunne.
