Former WWE Star will not make ECPW event due to “new contractual obligations”

East Coast Pro Wrestling announced on their facebook page that former WWE Superstar Erick Rowan will not make his previously scheduled appearance at Coal Town Carnage on Saturday, April 20 due to “new contractual obligations.”

Rowan has been a free agent since his release from WWE back in 2020. He has made brief appearances on AEW programming, most notably the tribute show to Brodie Lee that was on December 30, 2020.

His last appeared on WWE programming during the August 25, 2023 episode of WWE SmackDown to celebrate the life of Bray Wyatt, who had passed away that same day.

We have just received word this evening from Erick Rowan that unfortunately he will not be able to make his scheduled appearance next week at Coal Town Carnage.

Erick stated that new contractual obligations are preventing him from making several dates including ours.

This is the first time in ECPW history that one of our scheduled stars cancelled and it is out of our control.

With that being said, the show will still feature Former WWE Superstar Brian Kendrick, the debut of Vanessa Kraven plus all of the superstars or East Coast Pro Wrestling.

Three title matches, a New Waterford Rumble and much more goes down next Saturday at The New Waterford & District Community Center.
