Ring of Honor has cancelled all of their live events through May 31 in an effort to help stop the spread of coronavirus through a large gathering of people.
The company was already forced to cancel two events in Las Vegas this month due to the COVID-19 outbreak and now they’ve made the decision to cancel even more.
ROH’s statement can be found in full below:
Dear ROH Family,
Pursuant to the latest updates regarding Covid-19, known as the Coronavirus, and in strong consideration of the government’s mandate limiting large gatherings for the next 8 weeks, we are CANCELLING all ROH LIVE events through May 31st, 2020. We appreciate your understanding through these difficult times as we come together as a planet to do our part in slowing and helping stop the spread of this virus. We encourage all fans to avoid large crowds, practice social distancing, and adhere to the continuously updated guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO). Tickets purchased for all events will be refunded at the earliest possibility. In most cases, refunds should appear within 3-7 business days, but please allow for potential delays due to volume at our ticketing partners and possible delays in processing at various banks. As the pandemic progresses, ROH will continue to provide timely updates related to live touring plans.
For existing HonorClub members, we thank you for your loyalty and we know you subscribed so you can watch ROH events LIVE as they happen. Don’t worry, we got you covered! Starting April 1st, we will extend your current term automatically by a period of 90 days to cover the months of March, April, and May! Please continue to enjoy all of the existing VOD content, new VOD content from our historical library that will be added very soon, and of course the discounts on your favorite ROH merchandise at ROHProShop.com.
The entire Ring of Honor staff, wrestlers, and partners remain committed to providing daily and weekly content on all platforms. Please stay tuned to all ROH digital channels and ROHWrestling.com to keep up with the “Best Professional Wrestling on the Planet.”
This follows moves made by almost every major sports and entertainment organization to help stop the spread of coronavirus, which has killed over 90 of the more than 5,200 people who have been diagnosed with it in the United States. The death toll is reportedly over 7,500 people globally.
Restaurants, bars, movie theaters, gyms and similar gathering spaces across the country have been closed as well to hopefully help with “flattening the curve” over the next few weeks.
