Tyrus has been accused by a Candian indy promotion of taking money for a booking and never returning it after cancelling the appearance. Danny Warren of Canadian Wrestling’s Elite issued a statement on Friday accusing Tyrus of taking a $250 deposit for a series of appearances that would ran between August 26th and 29th. Warren said on the company’s Facebook page that in the week before the show, he was unable to reach Tryus by any methods in order to book his flight and do promotion for the tour.
The statement continues, “Finally, just a matter of weeks before the tour I get a response via text that ‘just this morning’ TNA required him over in Japan during my tour and he would send back the deposit.” He adds that the money was never sent back despite several attempts to collect, saying, “we are two months past the actual tour and even longer since his cancellation and claim the deposit would be sent back. In response to Brodus no longer returning contact I make contact with Bob Ryder from TNA in hopes of some resolution.”
Tyrus responded to the claims on Reddit, saying:
“Yeah so i cancelled this show 3 weeks prior to the show and not only did this guy continue to advertise that i was going to be there via print promotions he did online as well which could of easily been updated. I kept telling him to stop advertising that i was going to be there or i wouldn’t return his $250 deposit but he continued to and sold tickets claiming i was going to be there.
Day of the event he told fans i cancelled last minute and it wasn’t his fault i wasn’t there so i was the asshole not him. His deposit was returned but in a desperate attempt for attention he is running this BS anywhere he can.
Side not he changed the pay last second as well for the wrestlers who did do the show…. Wrestlers beware.”
