This weeks episode of ‘Super Powerrr’ will not air
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the National Wrestling Alliance have been forced to postpone the 2020 Crockett Cup and subsequent Powerrr takings.
In a statement, NWA Vice President Dave Lagana said:
“The National Wrestling Alliance, given the uncertain course of this world health crisis, is suspending normal operations until June as far as any live performances. This includes the upcoming Atlanta, GA events; Crockett Cup PPV on April 19th at the Gateway Center Arena and our NWA Powerrr tapings at GPB Studios on April 20th and 21st. At this time, the Super Powerrr episode scheduled to air on Tuesday March 17th, which promoted these events, will not air in its current form in order to not create confusion in the marketplace.
However, we will continue to produce content in the interim, and thank fans in advance 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. We look forward to seeing you all soon.
For those who have purchased tickets to The Crockett Cup at the Gateway Center, you’ll be receiving a refund from the point of purchase. For the NWA Powerrr at GPB on April 20th and 21st, if you’d like to keep your tickets for a future GPB event please email Maureen@nationalwrestlingalliance.com If you do not contact Maureen within 5 days, you’ll be issued a refund on your NWA Powerrr tickets.”
The Crockett Cup was set to be headlined by NWA World Champion Nick Aldis defending against Marty Scurll, with Scurll paying $500,000 to Aldis if he loses alongside thr eight team tournament itself.
This is the latest promotion to postpone events, joining CMLL, AAA, ROH, EVOLVE and many more. WWE and AEW are running their weekly events behind closed doors.
