AEW says scheduled shows to take place despite coronavirus


Just like WWE, All Elite Wrestling has no plans to cancel any of their upcoming live events due to the coronavirus. The company issued a statement today as COVID-19 continues to dominate the news and spreads across other states.

“All AEW events are currently moving forward as scheduled. Of course, the safety and well-being of AEW fans, partners and talent is always our top priority, so we will continue to closely monitor the rapidly evolving situation related to COVID-19 and be guided by government officials, health organizations and venue management,” the statement read. “AEW will update ticket purchasers if there are any changes to the event schedule, and we encourage everyone in the AEW family to be good to themselves – and each other – by taking preventative actions as recommended by the CDC and WHO.”

As more major events get canceled across the United States and the rest of the world, it looks like it might be a matter of time before AEW or WWE shows get nixed too until the situation calms down.
