During a recent interview with KFAN Radio's Extreme Pro Wrestling Show, Animal confirmed our report by saying that he had indeed been contacted by WWE about appearing at the PPV, but due to issues with timing, both sides were unable to work something out. He then went on to say that although his son James Laurinaitis will be attending the PPV, he will not be in St. Louis.
