Fan Backlash Over Sin City Showdown!
Los Angeles - The WFWF is coming back to Las Vegas for Sin City Showdown and already, the company is in hot water following the announcement that Katharsis will be returning to the squared circle in a unsanctioned match against Anna Ahriman. For those unaware, Katharsis hasn't competed since mid-2016 after her controversial exit from the Arizona Wrestling Federation after a heated argument with management. Ahriman threatened a lawsuit against the WFWF unless she got a match against the former AWF Television Champion. Lila Sleater, the WFWF General Manager issued the challenge on the company's Facebook page.
According to reports, Sleater met with both Ahriman and Katharsis separately and got the two to sign a release, pretty much absolving the company from any lawsuit. In response to the agreement, many wrestling fans took to social media to vent their frustrations with the company:
The hashtag, #BoycottSinCityShowdown was trending #1 on Twitter and many mainstream news sites picked up on the controversy, giving the company even more bad press.
As of this report, there's been no comment from Sleater in response to the criticism.
