Impact, NWA suspend/postpone events due to coronavirus

Impact’s Twitter

Add two more promotions to the growing list with events moved, rescheduled or cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Impact announced Monday that their two upcoming March shows - the Impact Plus Lockdown event that was set for March 28 in Windsor, Ontario, and March 29’s Breakdown, streaming from Belleville, Michigan for Twitch - have both been postponed. No new dates were announced. They advise ticket holders to “pursue refunds through your original point of purchase.”

The Anthem-owned promotion also said they’re “reviewing the recommendations from the appropriate government agencies and local communities” with regards to their two big April shows, the WrestleMania week throwback show set for April 3 in Tampa, and April 19’s Rebellion PPV from New York City.

In better news, Ethan Page tweeted the company is paying talent for the cancelled shows. Impact will also continue airing already taped shows on AXS each Tuesday.

The NWA is taking things further. Their announcement early reveals Billy Corgan’s fed will be “suspending normal operations until June as far as any live performances.” That includes The Crockett Cup PPV that was to happen in College Park, Georgia on April 19, and two days of follow-up Powerrr tapings from Atlanta the week after.

This Tuesday’s scheduled episode of Powerrr won’t air so as “to not create confusion in the marketplace,” but the NWA does say they will continue to produce content” during their shutdown.
