– There was an incident at a wXw event in Germany on Saturday where WWE Legend Vader refused to work. We’ll have more details on the situation later today but below is part of a statement released by wXw:
“This morning, when Terry Funk, Chris Masters and Steve Corino were about to get into their booked cab to the airport, Big Van Vader refused to leave his hotel room. Various attempts by our English partner promoter, Masters and the end Terry Funk himself to convince Vader otherwise proved fruitless. After Vader already refused to wrestle his agreed-upon match last night, today he decided that, despite already having received an advance payment, the fact that there is a sold out meet & greet session for him and the fact that we promoted the event around him, he would not fulfill his contractual obligations.”
– Wade Barrett’s stock within WWE went up a lot with his promo at the 2014 WWE Hall of Fame ceremony. Vince McMahon has been high on Barrett for a while and is a fan of the Bad News Barrett gimmick.
