-- As noted late last night here on the website, former WWE Intercontinental Champion The Honky Tonk Man issued the following statement via his webmaster yesterday evening concerning next week's "Old School" episode of Monday Night RAW, which he had been tentatively scheduled to attend:

"HTM and WWE could not come to terms for the Old School RAW show upcoming. HTM informed WWE yesterday that he no longer had a desire to participate on the event."

A follow-up message was issued on The Honky Tonk Man's Facebook account announcing that details concerning his dealings with WWE officials will be posted on his official website, honkytonkman.net.

"HTM will tell all on honkytonkman.net why he and WWE could not come to terms. A story no one wants to miss. We will expose the behind scenes of the things that really happened with e-mails to prove it. You will get an inside look into the way WWE deals with some people. $350 grand to someone for 2 mins. who never worked in pro wrestling but yet a 4 hr. plane ride in a s--tty middle seat to a legend. We will have it all."
