Former WWE superstar Stu Bennett (Bad News Barrett) recently spoke Chris Van Vilet to talk about all things pro-wrestling. During the interview the NWA color-commentator was asked whether he thinks the promotion will be running anymore events in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a decision Bennett believes will not be happening.
I would be amazed, and this is not coming from anyone in management, I would be amazed if NWA puts on a show in the rest of 2020 just based on how all of this stuff is spiking right now. I just don’t think it’s going to be safe for the rest of the year for anyone to be putting on a show or having the crowd there and all that stuff. Do not take my word for it, at the end of the day it’s Billy Corgan’s decision, but I would be surprised if anything comes in 2020.
