From the APWA Facebook page:

In four years we have ran 85 shows and only cancelled 7 shows due to weather. These will be our first five events ever cancelled for sponsors backing out of the event due to miscommunication. Don West takes full responsibility for this and we apologize for any inconvenience. All tickets through www.apwawrestling.com have been refunded. If you bought tickets from Fusions, Das Rookhas, PHS, or from anybody else you will need to get your refund from them. All 2300 Arena tickets will be refunded by 2300 arena.

Buddy Landel Passes Away

From Larry Goodman:

"Nature Boy" Buddy Landel died today in Chilhowee, VA at the age of 53. Landel was reportedly involved in a serious car accident over the weekend and wasn't feeling well when he went to bed last night. Landel's wife found him dead this morning.

Landel was on the road to major push with Jim Crockett promotions and a feud with Ric Flair when he no-showed a television taping. Landel was immediately fired and stripped of the NWA National Heavyweight Championship.

Landel participated in the headline match at the USWA's last sell out at the Memphis Mid South Coliseum.

He also had a ran at the top of Smoky Mountain Wrestling as the SMW Heavyweight Championship, culminating in a WWF Intercontinental title match vs. Shawn Michaels at the Knoxville Coliseum on August 14, 1995.

Landel was subsequently signed by the WWF and wrestled Bret Hart for the WWF World Heavyweight Championship before suffering a torn quad.

Allan Barrie (Al Getz) posted the following:

I made several road trips with Buddy over the years. I would pick him up and we would drive up to New Jersey. Sometimes we'd stop at the Baltimore airport to pick up Doug Gilbert or The Honky Tonk Man. We usually would stay at the Best Western in West Deptford NJ and work for Dennis Coralluzzo. Someone please put together a Memorial show for him so everybody can no-show it; that's what he would want.
