Inaugural WES Show Has Only Sold A Few Hundred Tickets

Wrestling Entertainment Series WES

Difficulties continue for WES as the fledgling promotion hasn’t sold many tickets before their debut show on July 9th.

Wrestling Entertainment Series has been fraught with difficulty before the promotion has even had a chance to debut. Headed by Sunny Dhinsa and Gzim Selmani – the former Akam and Rezar (Authors of Pain) – WES was due to hold its debut show on June 4th. However, just a week before the scheduled launch, the event was postponed until July 9th.

The rearranged show is due to take place at the Motorpoint Arena in Nottingham and features several changes to the card compared to the one originally advertised. One report revealed that multiple talents who were originally scheduled to perform were “very upset” at the show being rearranged, and some of these stars have taken to social media to make their complaints known.

Matthew Rehwoldt, formerly known as Aiden English in WWE, took the promotion to task, saying that they’ve cost him both time and money as he cancelled another booking to attend but has now been ghosted by those in charge at WES.

Lina Fanene, the former Nia Jax, also blasted the company for continuing to feature her on their advertising material when she will not be performing on the show. She is still listed as facing CJ Perry (formerly known as Lana) on the official Motorpoint Arena website.

Now, Adam Callier of the Daily Star revealed that the promotion had sold less than 350 tickets as of the morning of July 5th, just four days before the event is to take place.

“Just been told that this re-arranged show, which still has people advertised on the poster who aren’t coming, and is being held at the 10,000 seater Motorpoint Arena in Nottingham has sold *drum roll*… LESS THAN 350 tickets.”

In a statement, released to announce WES rescheduling its debut, the former Authors of Pain explained that the show was originally intended to take place in the UAE but was moved after the death of Sheikh Khalifa. The former WWE stars went on to cite the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations as one of the primary reasons behind the rescheduling.

Although the company put out the press release on May 31st, Chelsea Green who had been set to appear on the show, posted on social media that it wasn’t going ahead.
