The Boyz were expected to make their in-ring debut at DEFY on 9/25. The visa issues after COVID-19 regulations have been there in one form or the other, and the tag-team of brothers has been suffering from that.
The brothers took to Twitter in order to announce that they will not be debuting on 25/9 due to their issues. They tweeted in an image format:
It is really upsetting to put this statement out this morning, however, unfortunately we will be unable to travel to Seattle, Washington for tonight’s DEFY Wrestling show.
There was a delay in receiving our new work visas on time & with border restrictions being tight between Canada/US, without the visas, we are unable to travel.
Losing our job during a global pandemic hasn’t been the easiest. It leaves you with a lot of uncertainty, especially as internationals losing their work visas in the process.
This is our livelihood.
We cannot thank the team at DEFY Wrestling enough for helping & guiding us through this entire ordeal.
It has been a long summer and long 90 days. This was going to be our first live appearance since our releases. We were really looking forward to getting back in the ring in front of the DEFY Wrestling audience.
We have been assured by officials our visas will be ready in time for the October 9th show in Portland, Oregon.
Once again, our sincerest apologies to all the fans. Please continue to support tonight’s show!
