The timing of this announcement is likely related to the issues surrounding Jarrett from this past weekend. Jarrett was scheduled to work on two Real Canadian Wrestling shows but, according to sources familiar with the situation, he was detained at the airport when he arrived in the country. We don’t know why he was detained but, after a few hours, officials allowed him entry into the country on the condition that he had to leave by 8 am on Saturday morning. That meant that he could not work the second show on Saturday.
Sources that were at the show on Friday told us that Jarrett looked to be in rough shape and he was in no condition to perform.
