Championship Wrestling International announced Thursday that Kevin Nash has been pulled from their 2011 East Coast Invasion due to his obligations with WWE. The ten-day tour kicks off today in the eastern region of Canada.

"Wrestling fans, we regret to inform you that Kevin Nash will not be with us for the Invasion Tour of the Maritimes," said Donnie Abrue, Head of Talent Relations.

"As most fans are aware, Kevin Nash recently returned to World Wrestling Entertainment. Nash has been under contract to WWE for several months and was free to work elsewhere as long as WWE wasn't in need of his services at that time. Nash competed in the main event for CWI this past May without any issue."
