Matt Rehwoldt Claims He's Been "Ghosted" By Wrestling Entertainment Series
Has doubts about the inaugural show
Impact Wrestling announcer Matt Rehwoldt has posted a series of critical tweets about the upstart Wrestling Entertainment Series, whose inaugural show he was booked to be a part of.
The former Aiden English tweeted that he agreed to be part of WES' first event on July 9, and had even canceled another booking on the same date after WES offered him an upfront payment.
Since then, Rehwoldt claims, he has not heard from WES, adding that others who are booked for the July 9 card have not been given any hotel or travel information.
Rehwoldt tweeted, "So @wesofficialtv has cost me time and now cost me income. I was asked to be on this show but had a conflicting booking. I was told they really wanted me and would pay me upfront. So as they were former colleagues I took them at their word and passed on my other booking.
"And since I have been completely ghosted. Zero communication. I have friends booked for the show and luckily some of them have been paid already but I doubt the show will happen. No travel, hotel, or any pertinent information has been shared with anyone I know.
"Now I’m also out a weekend or income due to them. Part of that is on me as I chose to forgo my other date… But as I said I was told repeatedly that “for sure“ this was happening and they wanted me to be there. I would be wary of buying a ticket or the broadcast of this show."
Wrestling Entertainment Series was is being promoted by Authors of Pain teammates Gzim "Rezar" Selmani and Sunny "Akam" Dhinsa. The inaugural card is set for July 9 at Motorpoint Arena in Nottingham (after being postponed from June 4). Scheduled talents include the AOP themselves, as well as Moose, Nia Jax, Mojo Rawley, Eric Young, and former UFC star Alastair Overeem.
