The Coronavirus pandemic continues to rock the pro-wrestling landscape.
The April 26th NXT UK Takeover Dublin pay per view from the 3Arena in Dublin Ireland has been postponed due to the virus restricting the number of people legally able to be gathered in the U.K. The venue made the announcement themselves on Twitter earlier this morning. The event, which was set to be build-around a clash between brand champion WALTER and former Universal champion Finn Balor, will now take place on October 25th.
The venue writes, "NXT Takeover scheduled to take place at 3Arena on Sunday, 26 April has been postponed and will now take place on Sunday, 25 October. All tickets remain valid for the new date."

Since the viral outbreak was declared a national emergency wrestling promotions all over the world, including NJPW, ROH, IMPACT, MLW, and dozens of independents, have had to either postpone or outright cancel shows previously planned months ahead of time. WWE and AEW continue to run live weekly television from closed sets with limited personnel.
