In yet another sad turn of events, MLW has been forced to move it’s May 2 show.
Originally scheduled for the first Saturday of the month at the NYTEX Sports Centre, it’s now been pushed back to October, due to the Coronavirus Pandemic.
The full statement reads;
All tickets purchased for the originally scheduled date will be honored at this time.
League officials along with Dr. Nelson Sweglar are continually monitoring the on-going coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic. The status to delay additional events will be decided in the weeks ahead.
The league remains focused on a return after suspending promoting live events, however is proceeding with an abundance of caution.
MLW has considered many scenarios but is not close to rolling out a plan given that the pandemic has yet to reach its apex in the United States.
At the appropriate time, the league will communicate plans for promoting live events outside of the temporary hiatus and update the status of league events.
The MLW family would like to extend our appreciation and well wishes to all doctors, nurses, emergency services staff, first responders, medical professionals, essential services staff and all others on the front line working to address the public health crisis in our nation and around the world.”
