Black Label Pro Hosting Empty Arena Event On 3/28 To Help Wrestlers, Safety Precautions Being Taken

Black Label Pro wrestling has announced that they will be hosting an empty arena event on March 28. In addition, a crowdfunding campaign has been started to help wrestlers affected by the shutdown of events due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

This announcement was made on Twitter by Mikey, the promoter of Black Label Pro. The empty arena event will be streamed on IWTV.live, a streaming subscription service that acts as a home of many independent promotions including IWA Mid-South, Freelance Wrestling, and more.

Wrestling events across all promotions are feeling the effects of COVID-19. Most recently, the CDC updated its guidance for containing the Coronavirus and have advised that for the next eight weeks, there be no gatherings of 50 people or more. Due to the live nature of professional wrestling, this undoubtedly hurts many promotions.

Another IWTV promotion, Freelance Wrestling, announced plans to host live streams from their training warehouse and stream them weekly. Learn more about that at this link.
