According to Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com, WWE pulled Hall of Famer and NXT Coach D-Von Dudley from the Battleground Championship Wrestling event this past Saturday at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, PA. Johnson noted the following about the situation…
“The promotion’s side is that they received a legal letter from WWE this past Thursday upset about BCW promoting a ‘Tribute to the Extreme’ at the show, playing off the ECW intellectual property, which is obviously now owned by WWE. D-Von was then pulled from the show, despite, according to the promotion, personally reaching out to WWE Chief Content Officer Paul Levesque to get the edict reversed, which was not successful.”
D-Von had been slated to appear during a match between Bully Ray and Matt Cardona.
