The National Wrestling Alliance issued the following press release announcing that their upcoming Crockett Cup pay per view, as well as all tapings of their weekly episodic Powerrr, have been suspended due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. Check out the details, including a video message from play-by-play man Joe Galli which can be watched above.
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 [email protected] If you do not contact Maureen within 5 days, you'll be issued a refund on your NWA Powerrr tickets.
Also anyone who has pre-ordered Crockett Cup on Fite.tv will be receiving a refund as well ASAP.
Please stay safe!

We are all gutted about this, but fan/staff safety comes first. Stick with us, and we'll see you on the other side. We will be working on video content to keep you engaged & entertained in the interim. Stay safe and thanks for supporting @NWA & #NWAPowerrr. https://t.co/00tQrRh6ca— Stu Bennett (@StuBennett) March 16, 2020
