GCW held its three-day Independent wrestling event The Collective this past weekend in Indiana and unfortunately, things did not go as hoped when it comes to COVID-19.
Dan The Dad, AC Mack, Cabana Man Dan, all of whom participated in at least one event over the weekend revealed they tested positive for COVID-19. As a result of the positive tests, St. Louis Anarchy canceled its event on October 16 and ROH pulled talent who were at The Collective from its TV tapings.
The Collective issued the following statement regarding the positive tests coming out of the event.
Thank you to all the fans that attended #TheCollective in Indianapolis! On behalf of the 8 participating promotions, we thank you for your energy and enthusiasm at a time when we all needed this feeling of normalcy.
Not only did you attend but you followed guidelines and were respectful and mindful of the safety of not just yourselves, but also of those around you and for that we are grateful.
With that being said, over the last 24+ hours, we have learned of a handful of positive COVID tests from those who attended The Collective. We have been in contact with some of them and will continue to be and offer our support as they navigate through the coming days and weeks.
We encourage everyone who attended the events in any capacity to get a test as soon as possible and notify those they may have interacted with of their situation.
GCW is still scheduled to hold its The Last Resort event in California on October 17.
