- Billy Gunn, X-Pac, Michael Tarver and indy talent Akbar Farat will not be at the PRWA show tomorrow night in Salinas, Puerto Rico. X-Pac revaled via Twitter that they would not be at the show as the promoter didn't get them plane tickets to travel to the show. X-Pac noted:
As bad as twitter & FB can be at times. It also evens the playing field & makes people think twice about screwing someone over, etc.
PRWA's owner Victor "Metal Blade" Siebens had initially been involved in the World Wrestling League, but WWL severed ties with him and began pushing the event instead of using the names he had first booked for the WWL show. Some of the promoters on Puerto Rico are upset because they think this paints wrestling on the island in a bad light, as average fans don't see it as specific competing promotions and when former WWE talent doesn't show up, it hurts the drawing power the next time someone wants to use that level of talent.
