Sid Vicious no shows Indy Event due to Donald Trump protest
Former WCW and WWE performer Sid Vicious no shows an event for Xcite Wrestling. The reason behind Sid no showing was due to a protest involving a supporter for President Donald Trump. The company sent out the following message on their Facebook page:
“Which one of you butt holes told Sid that [the owner] is a Giant Trumpster?!?! Well, I hope you’re happy, he decided to not get on a plane for our friend’s at [other business]. So he won’t be appearing for us either. We are really disappointed but now we can finally say we are like our friends AIW!”
This quote is also referencing Sid’s no-show appearance for Absolute Intense Wrestling (AIW) based in Cleveland, Ohio. The reason behind this no-show was due to Donald Trump’s travel ban. Sid has had a history of no-showing events in the past. In March 2012, Sid no-showed an event based out of New Jersey. The promoter for the event, who was very angry and upset at Sid, proceeded to cut a promo to the crowd giving out Sid's phone number and encouraging them to call Sid personally to air their grievances and disappointment.
