Former WWE star unable to appear at independent event due to “new contractual obligations”

East Coast Pro Wrestling (ECPW) made the following announcement via Facebook…

We have just received word this evening from Erick Rowan that unfortunately he will not be able to make his scheduled appearance next week at Coal Town Carnage. Erick stated that new contractual obligations are preventing him from making several dates including ours. This is the first time in ECPW history that one of our scheduled stars cancelled and it is out of our control.

With that being said, the show will still feature Former WWE Superstar Brian Kendrick, the debut of Vanessa Kraven plus all of the superstars or East Coast Pro Wrestling. Three title matches, a New Waterford Rumble and much more goes down next Saturday at The New Waterford & District Community Center. Please message the ECPW FB Page if further information is required.

As previously noted, there has been speculation about Uncle Howdy (Bo Dallas) making a return to WWE television and not coming alone so it remains to be seen if Howdy aligns with former Bray Wyatt stablemate Rowan.
