Major League Wrestling Shuts Down Live Events For 45 Days
MLW has announced today a 45 day live event hiatus effective immediately. 45 days from now would be April 29. MLW programming will continue to air on Saturday nights. MLW published the following message:
“Major League Wrestling has suspended promoting live events for 45 days, effective immediately, as the league continues to assess the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. At the appropriate time, the league will communicate plans for promoting live events outside of the 45-day temporary hiatus and update the status of league events. MLW programming will continue to air Saturday nights on beIN SPORTS, MLW’s YouTube channel and with partners around the world during this period.”
This means that MLW’s April 18 event in Chicago is postponed until Friday June 12. All originally purchased tickets will be honored on the new date.
MLW ended their statement by saying, “The MLW family would like to extend our appreciation and well wishes to all doctors, nurses, emergency services staff, first responders and medical professionals on the front line working to address the public health crisis in our nation and around the world.”
