Reported Reason Why WWE Pulled Talent From SWE Event
We reported a few days ago that WWE pulled talent from a SWE event and now the reported reason for this has been revealed. Advertised superstars had included Joseph Connors, Xia Brookside, Ilja Draganov and Saxton Huxley.
PWInsider is reporting that the reason is due to the Aaren Wilde incident that recently occurred at Rev Pro Wrestling. Referee Aaren Wilde was attacked by Josh Bodom & Sha Samuels following their tag match against Aussie Open. Rev Pro Wrestling will be taking over SWE operations following the 9th anniversary event.
When WWE heard about the incident and found out that Rev Pro was taking over, they pulled out advertised superstars for safety and PR concerns. WWE did not want any issues that would hurt future NXT/NXT UK shows.
AEW is now sending MJF, Shawn Spears, and Cody to the show to make up for WWE pulling out of the event.
