A match slated for the October 20 episode of Rampage was abruptly canceled at the last minute due to one wrestler refusing to concede to the other.
Metalik and Komander were originally set to face off in a singles match during the episode. However, according to Dave Meltzer in the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Metalik expressed unwillingness to accept a loss, leading to the match’s removal from the show.
“The reason the 10/20 Rampage show had only three matches instead of four is because Komander vs. Metalik was booked for the show and then pulled when Metalik refused to put Komander over,” Meltzer wrote. “Metalik still worked Collision a few days later but that can’t have helped his standing here.”
