ATLANTA, Ga. (MWSN/Ambush Sports) — The National Wrestling Alliance (NWA) made an announcement Monday that they’re suspending operations through June regarding live shows and performances. The NWA reached the decision as related to the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 coronavirus epidemic.
This announcement postpones the April 19 Crockett Cup PPV at the Gateway Center Arena and the April 20 and 21 tapings of NWA Powerrr. The release did not state what May tapings are affected for filming at the Georgia Public Broadcasting Studios in Atlanta.
As a result of suspended operations, Tuesday’s scheduled broadcast of Super Powerrr will not air. The show, which promoted the PPV and television tapings, would cause some confusion if it aired as scheduled.
NWA vice president David Lagana states in the release that they’ll continue to produce content in the interim. Lagana also thanks fans 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,” Lagana stated. “We look forward to seeing you all soon.”
Those who purchased tickets for the Crockett Cup show will receive a refund from their point of purchase. Those who purchased tickets for the Powerrr tapings on April 20 and 21 will need to contact NWA operations director Maureen Tracy if they wish to use those tickets for a future TV taping. Saturday is the deadline for utilizing the tickets for a future TV event. Those who opt-out will receive a refund.
FITE.tv subscribers who had already pre-ordered the Crockett Cup PPV will receive a full refund soon.
