The Starrcast II convention was going to have The Undertaker and WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle appear in it. According to a latest report by the Sports Illustrated, they have been pulled from the event. This is because the convention will take place during the weekend AEW’s Double or Nothing event in Las Vegas.
The top stars were pulled because of the burgeoning war between All Elite Wrestling and WWE." Starrcast is not by any means affiliated with AEW but there is a chance that the convention will feature some AEW stars. The Undertaker’s booking was announced on the 14th of February.
It was reported that the WWE officials didn’t like Taker taking bookings outside of the WWE. "The announcement went wide and viral," said Starrcast founder Conrad Thompson. "I was told it had gotten WWE's attention and that Vince McMahon texted The Undertaker about the appearance.
'Taker's representation, which is a company called Get Engaged, called to tell me, 'WWE says he can't do it.' " "I had a friend discuss the situation with Vince McMahon, and I was assured the 'heat' wasn't on me or my event but rather that The Undertaker shouldn't be doing personal appearances outside of WWE," Thompson told SI.
"I was assured that damages would be covered, a suitable replacement offered, or some sort of compromise to make everyone happy."
