A visa issue has led to PAC being pulled from his appearances on behalf of WrestleCon over WrestleMania Week in New York and New Jersey.
WrestleCon issued a statement stating that their application was filed in a timely manner and told by their attorneys that they didn’t foresee any issues in PAC obtaining a visa. They go on to state that after exhausting all efforts they were unable to provide PAC with the appropriate visa to work in the United States. They added that this will not have any effect on his future with AEW as PAC is scheduled for “Double or Nothing” on May 25th in Las Vegas.
PAC had been advertised for the WrestleCon Supershow on April 4th, Revolution Pro on April 5th and a match against Rich Swann at the Pro Wrestling Revolver card on April 6th.
Below is the statement released by WrestleCon:
We regret to inform you that PAC will not be at WrestleCon. We worked diligently over the past several months with our attorneys to ensure that he successfully received a visa to travel into the United States. Our visa application was filed in a timely manner, all fees were paid to attorneys, and all required information was disclosed to government officials. Our attorneys were confident there would be no issue and based on their experience and expectation, we advertised PAC on the assumption there would be no problem obtaining a visa. However, after exhausting all efforts, we were unable to provide PAC the appropriate visa to travel and work in the United States. We understand and share your disappointment of this unanticipated outcome, as does PAC.
Further, we would like to clarify that in no way will this unfortunate incident have any impact on his future with AEW. This issue is isolated to WrestleCon only.
Over the next few days, we will issue refunds on all photo ops and autographs that were purchased related to PAC’s appearance at the convention. We will also replace graphics that featured him, so we appreciate your patience during these updates.
