Matchroom Pool cited "travel issues" as the reason for the pullout, with Team Philippines being replaced by Thailand's Thepchaiya Un-Noon and Noppon Saengkham.
The competition would have been the return of Reyes in the World Cup of Pool, an event he has won twice with Francisco "Django" Bustamante including the inaugural edition in 2006.
The event is set to begin on Tuesday at the Brentwood Centre in Essex, England.
