Former WWE Superstar Sean "X-Pac" Waltman was scheduled to wrestle at an IPW show in the U.K. today, but Waltman never arrived on his flight yesterday, according to the promotion. In a Facebook post, IPW said, "With regret, unless a miracle occurs, X-Pac will no longer be appearing at the Extreme Measures 2017 event later today. He was scheduled to land in the UK on Saturday at 2pm, but 12 hours later and nobody has heard from him. We wish Sean well and hope he is safe. Sometimes you do everything you can but it's completely out of our hands."
In a comment on the post last night, the promotion noted, "Unfortunately nobody has had any contact from him (as of this writing), and the airline cannot give out this information due to data protection. So essentially we don't know."
Waltman, normally active on social media, hasn't posted an update since Friday, after taking an abused dog under his care:
Waltman has had a troubled past, as have many pro wrestlers of his generation, causing some fans to speculate on the reason for no-showing the PPV on /r/SquaredCircle, as well as certain ghoulish websites, but Waltman posted a photo of himself last month claiming to be in the best shape of his life, mentally and physically, and by all accounts, he has been doing well.
Additionally, Waltman noted on Friday that his new pooch was undergoing surgery for a broken jaw that day, which could have conflicted with his planned flight.
Another point worth noting is that the match in the UK was being promoted as a retirement match for Waltman, but Waltman disputed that he was retiring last week on an episode of the Two Man Power Trip podcast, saying that he was "far from done" with his career.
Hopefully, Waltman is doing just fine and we'll have an update on his whereabouts soon. We've reached out to his agent and will update this story if we get a response.
UPDATE: Waltman has been found, and is okay.
