American superstar Chris Masters has been announced as the replacement for former World Heavyweight Champion Jake Hager after contract negotiations between WAW, Hager, and his current employer were unable to conclude with an agreement to allow Hager’s appearance at EPIC Studios, Norwich this weekend. Hager was scheduled to make his WAW debut against former rival Alberto El Patron at the Isolation event of this weekend’s overall WAWTV6 event on Saturday but will no longer be able to make said appearance. Despite this, Hager is still scheduled to make an appearance for WAW later in the year.
The WAW office acted quickly to ensure that fans would not be disappointed by the withdrawal of such an well known international superstar from the event without a suitable replacement, leading to immediate contract negotiations with Masters who will challenge Undisputed World Heavyweight Champion Brad Slayer for his title in the afternoon before competing against El Patron in the evening. Masters will also be in attendance during our meet and greet prior to the afternoon show and is a welcome addition to the growing list of internationally renowned names joining the WAW roster.
Tickets for this weekend’s events can be purchased here. Should anyone wish to request a refund after the withdrawal of Hager’s appearance please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0800 046 8164.
