Bandido no-shows GCW Devil In A New Dress, issues statement

Bandido had been scheduled to face Nick Wayne at the event.

Bandido did not appear as scheduled at tonight's GCW Devil In A New Dress event in San Francisco, one of several no-shows.

GCW tweeted about an hour before the show was set to begin that the 26 year-old star had apparently not gotten on his scheduled flight for the show, that they had not heard from him, and that he was not returning calls or messages. Bandido had been scheduled to face Nick Wayne on the show. Instead, Wayne wrestled Effy in the opener. Effy had issued an open challenge to Jeff Jarrett for the show.

Bandido tweeted during the show that the no-show was his mistake. 

Bandido wrestled five times over WrestleMania weekend in the Dallas area, including a AAA show, MLW show, two WrestleCon shows, and in the main event of ROH's Supercard of Honor, where he lost to Jonathan Gresham in the main event.

Devil In A New Dress was headlined by Minoru Suzuki taking on "Speedball" Mike Bailey. 

It was announced during the show that Jacob Fatu had experienced travel problems in getting to the show, and was replaced in his scheduled six-man tag by D-Rogue. 

Biff Busick and Gringo Loco also did not appear as advertised. No explanation was given. Busick had been set to face Masha Slamovich, while Loco was set to take on Jimmy Lloyd. Instead, Lloyd and Slamovich wrestled each other.
