Southside Wrestling were set to welcome back Tag Team Champions Joseph Conners and El Ligero (The Joseph Conners Experience with Ligs) to face The Rascalz at their Retribution event on August 19th in St Neots, but it appears this is no longer going to be happening.
Both Conners and Ligero are no longer scheduled to appear at the event due to their contractual obligations to NXT UK.
“WWEUK competitors are no longer allowed to work Indy shows one week prior to their own live events.”
NXT UK are scheduled to be a part of the Insomnia Gaming Festival on August 25th and 26th. NXT UK contracted talent Dan Maloney will also no longer be able to participate in the Retribution event, however this is due to injury.
Both Conners and Ligero are considered mainstays in Southside, and have held the Tag Team Championships for nearly a year. The team defeated GBH at Menace II Society VII in a Tables match on August 5th 2017 to claim the belts.
Southside has now been forced to announce that there will be a Triple Threat tag team bout to determine number 1 contenders for their Tag Team Championships with The Hooligans, The Rascalz and GBH competing.
