Furthermore, since Wheeler has not been presently convicted of a crime, it does not appear he will have any issues traveling to London for All In.

Based on Friday’s arrest and what may happen in the near future, it poses the question if FTR will be made to drop the World Tag Team Title Belts to the Young Bucks.
