Nick Wayne back home following diverted flight due to bomb threat


Nick Wayne and his mother are back in Seattle safe following a diverted flight home caused by a bomb threat.

Wayne confirmed on Tuesday afternoon on social media that he is now home.

“Made it back to Seattle. I appreciate all of you for everything,” he wrote.

Wayne and his mother were flying from Frankfurt, Germany to Seattle on Condor flight DE2032 when a bomb threat was found on the bathroom mirror inside the plane. Bryan Alvarez on Wrestling Observer Radio Tuesday morning described the situation.

"Somebody apparently went into the bathroom and wrote either 'bomb' or 'explosion' on the mirror in the bathroom," he said. "They turned around, they landed in Iceland, they took everybody off the plane, they herded them into some secure area.”

Airlive reported that there were 266 people on the flight. The plane was diverted to Keflavik, Iceland into an area guarded by police.

Wayne defeated Robbie X at a PROGRESS event on Sunday in London, England.
