AEW Pulling Shawn Spears From Indy Shows

Shawn was to appear next week for Limitless Wrestling in Maine against new EVOLVE signing Anthony Greene. However he was pulled last minute by AEW for the reason of a "video shoot" even though he committed to this date before signing with AEW. Shawn's replaced by Tommy Dreamer on the Maine promotion's show.

I thought AEW were about working with other promotions??? Weird.

Re: AEW Pulling Shawn Spears From Indy Shows

I’d prefer if their talent became more exclusive anyways.

They are open to letting their talent work with other promotions, but it has its limits, AEW will be their priority.

Re: AEW Pulling Shawn Spears From Indy Shows

AEW has to protect their top stars like Tye Dillinger

Why are they pushing this WWE reject again? Oh right, Cody's friend.

Think it's a poor idea unless they run house-shows on the weekend. Helps give the wrestlers some opportunity to try ideas for TV. Shawn Spears being one of those guys that might desperately need opportunity to put some ideas to the test. A guy like him, near-permanently stuck in WWE developmental hell probably doesn't have the best feel of what freedom means and putting ideas out into the wild.

Re: AEW Pulling Shawn Spears From Indy Shows

I also have to wonder of its because of Retro AG. I say that because AG recently signed with EVOLVE. And EVOLVE is basically developmental for NXT with WWE even airing it on their network now. So AEW wouldn't want one of their main event guys losing to a pseudo WWE guy. Much like WWE did pulling Toni Storm from her match in Japan against Bea Priestley recently, who has yet to even appear on AEW tv.

Re: AEW Pulling Shawn Spears From Indy Shows

EVOLVE is associated with WWE first and foremost, and WWE recently pulled this stunt by pulling Toni Storm from a show when she was scheduled to compete versus Bea. Second off, AEW have said time and time again, that internationally their talent is free to work wherever as long as it doesn't conflict with AEW, but in America, their talent is exclusive to them, especially once television approaches/starts.

They let their talent do indy but they still have the priority, that's the minimum. He is needed to have a very important interview with jr which is gonna be a defining moment for the rebranding of his character.
I mean did people actually expect them do not have at least the priority other their talents?....come one...

Re: AEW Pulling Shawn Spears From Indy Shows

I know that AEW has the priority and that stuff and I get that, so I wouldn't blame them, I would blame Spears, since it seems like he signed this contract before signing with AEW and was regularly saying that he would appear, so it seems really unprofessional of him to cancel that at the last moment.
