“Dear ROH Family, after much consideration and consultation with local officials regarding COVID-19, ROH has decided to cancel this weekend’s 18th Anniversary (March 13th) & Past vs. Present (March 14th) shows at Sam’s Town Live in Las Vegas.
This extremely difficult decision was made in conjunction with the most recent developments surrounding COVID-19, known as the Coronavirus.
While the marquee ’18th Anniversary’ and the very special ‘Past v Present’ events were ready to show the world why Ring of Honor is truly the ‘Best Professional Wrestling on the Planet,’ the safety and health of our fans, talents and staff are always our utmost priority.
Additional Information will be provided as soon as possible regarding refunds and potential rescheduling of the events that were set to transpire this weekend.
Once again, thank you for understanding and we truly appreciate your continued patronage and support.”
Multiple Japanese promotions have been forced to cancel events and WWE is still undecided on the status of WrestleMania. They have already announced that SmackDown has been moved from Detroit to the WWE Performance Center for this week’s show.
