Here’s why the December 4 NWA Hard Times 2 pay-per-view had a small live audience.
As per PWInsider, NWA was told on November 30 that no more than 90 fans could be in attendance for any of this weekend’s events in the GBS Studios in Atlanta, including the pay-per-view. This is because the GBS Studios are government funded, so are being held to a ‘more restrictive standard’ due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The report revealed that NWA’s Kyle Davis personally reached out to fans who had their tickets refunded, sharing this message from NWA President Billy Corgan:
‘To say the ongoing pandemic has been a challenge in running live events is an understatement, as it has for anyone who has been adversely affected by what remains this ongoing health and safety crisis. And though this latest setback will not deter us from going ‘on with the show’, we appreciate your understanding today so as to not have to turn anyone away at the door; as this is certainly a circumstance beyond our control.”
At NWA Hard Times 2, eight championships were defended, including the IMPACT Knockouts Title, and the ROH World Tag Team Championship. You can read the full results for the show at this link.
