We posted last week how WWE had withdrawn their talent from the UK indie promotion Southside’s final show. The speculation at the time was because Southside had sold/merged with RevPro, who have a relationship with New Japan, and this annoyed WWE.
AEW then stepped in to save the day and are sending Shawn Spears and MJF to wrestle, plus Cody & Brandi Rhodes will appear.
It seems though there could be more to the story as William Regal posted the below on Twitter and then quickly deleted it.
Whilst I’m here in Brentwood UK, if Ben from Southside Wrestling wants to have a chat then i’d be happy to meet up. Then we can post out a video and explain the truth of why @NXTUK talent were pulled from your shows and your unprofessional emails to me.

Regal is currently in the UK for the latest set of NXT UK tapings. Hopefully, we will get to hear WWE’s side of the story.
