The National Wrestling Alliance issued a statement and a video (above) announcing that the company will be “suspending normal operations until June as far as any live performances” due to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) global pandemic.
The Crocket Cup event on April 19, as well as the upcoming NWA Powerrr tapings on April 20 and April 21, will not be taking place. Those that already purchased tickets can use them for a future event or receive a refund.
The Super Powerrr episode that was to air on Tuesday will not air in its current form so they don’t “create confusion in the marketplace” as they heavily promoted the upcoming events. In the interim, the company will continue to produce content.
Here is the full statement from the NWA:
STATEMENT FROM NATIONAL WRESTLING ALLIANCE
The National Wrestling Alliance, given the uncertain course of this world health crisis, is suspending normal operations until June as far as any live performances. This includes the upcoming Atlanta, GA events; Crockett Cup PPV on April 19th at the Gateway Center Arena and our NWA Powerrr tapings at GPB Studios on April 20th and 21st. At this time, the Super Powerrr episode scheduled to air on Tuesday March 17th, which promoted these events, will not air in its current form in order to not create confusion in the marketplace. However, we will continue to produce content in the interim, and thank fans in advance for their continued support.
The health and safety of our wrestlers, in-house and NWA staff, and fans are of the utmost importance during the global pandemic of COVID-19. We look forward to seeing you all soon.
For those who have purchased tickets to The Crockett Cup at the Gateway Center, you’ll be receiving a refund from the point of purchase. For the NWA Powerrr at GPB on April 20th and 21st, if you’d like to keep your tickets for a future GPB event please email Maureen@nationalwrestlingalliance.com If you do not contact Maureen within 5 days, you’ll be issued a refund on your NWA Powerrr tickets.
Also anyone who has pre-ordered Crockett Cup on Fite.tv will be receiving a refund as well ASAP.
Please stay safe!
