SoCal Val announced during tonight’s Lockdown pre-show that Doug Williams would not be available to defend the X Division Championship at tonight’s pay-per-view. As a result, he has been stripped of the belt.
The previously scheduled tag match between the Motor City Machine Guns and Brian Kendrick & Homicide has been changed to an Xscape Match between all four participants. The winner of the bout would then qualify to compete in the X Division title match against Kazarian and Shannon Moore.
As reported earlier, Williams is presently stranded in his home country of the UK and thus unable to fly to the United States.
*SPOILER* on Styles vs. Pope – will Pope win the title? ->
