• BREAKING: WWE Pulls The Undertaker & Kurt Angle From Starrcast II
Sports Illustrated has announced that The Undertaker & Kurt Angle have been pulled from Starrcast II (which takes place during AEW Double or Nothing weekend next month).
Below is what Starrcast owner Conrad Thompson said regarding this:
“The announcement went wide and viral. I was told it had gotten WWE’s attention and that Vince McMahon texted The Undertaker about the appearance. ’Taker’s representation, which is a company called Get Engaged, called to tell me, ‘WWE says he can’t do it.’
I had a friend discuss the situation with Vince McMahon, and I was assured the ‘heat’ wasn’t on me or my event but rather that The Undertaker shouldn’t be doing personal appearances outside of WWE. I was assured that damages would be covered, a suitable replacement offered, or some sort of compromise to make everyone happy.
I suggested Vince McMahon, Hunter, or Stephanie McMahon. And I said I would donate 100% of the proceeds to Conor’s Cure and match the donation personally, which would turn a negative into a positive for everyone involved.
I asked to keep Kurt Angle and announce Shawn Michaels as the replacement for The Undertaker. I offered to book everyone ‘through the office.’. I wanted to play by the rules but I felt like I already had, since each of these guys were actively marketing themselves for outside appearances via booking agents or their own social media. I have checked in daily for a week now and nothing is changing.
I had an agreement in place with the talent. Without exception, I dealt directly with the talent or their management, they set their terms, and I complied. First class travel accommodations were made and marketing was done. Now, thanks to the influence of WWE, the performers are missing out on substantial income and the fans are being punished.
I’m continuing my search for rare meet-and-greets and unique experiences for Starrcast. We have announced a very rare appearance from Tatsumi Fujinami and we’re working on another Japanese legend. We’ve got at least a couple more surprise names fans may not see coming in the next several days, and I’m most proud of ‘The Roast of Ric Flair,’ which is going to be extremely big.”
