The most surprising thing about this announcement from TEG Dainty, WWE’s promotional partner in the South Pacific, is that they hadn’t already postponed their 2021 Australia & New Zealand tour.
Besides the controlled environment at the Capitol Wrestling Center in Orlando, the company is just hoping to get back in front of fans in the United States by Aug. 22’s SummerSlam. Word is they’ll be back on the road in this country after that.
Seeing as the outright cancelled the NXT UK TakeOver: Dublin event that had been pencilled in for June, there was really no chance they’d head off an international tour around that same time.
Here’s the details from TEG Dainty:
