Synergy Pro Wrestling will present "For The Crown", a live streaming pro wrestling experience on Saturday, March 28, 2020, at 3 pm EST. The event will stream internationally on FITE.tv.
"After a careful and deliberate discussion, it became clear the ability of our wrestling family to earn a living and put food on their tables was our top priority," said Synergy owner Colin West. "We set out to find a way to run a streaming-only event while taking every recommended health precaution available."
Synergy is committed to not only providing a safe workplace for its roster and crew, but in taking COVID-19 specific preventative measures (as recommended by the CDC & NJ health officials) to provide the cleanest work environment possible for all involved with the March 28th event.
"For The Crown" will be held in an empty venue (no fans present), with essential personnel and staff only. The entire work surface will be thoroughly disinfected & sanitized to current recommended standards before the event and twice during the event; the ring ropes and turnbuckles will be sanitized between each match.
All proceeds from sales of the March 28th live stream will be put towards current or future payments of Synergy's professional wrestling roster. "This is not the moment for us to be turning a profit," West explained.
Special fundraising & giveaway offers will take place for fans during the live stream on FITE.tv, available for $9.99 anywhere in the world.
