The Collective won't go on as scheduled.
GCW and The Collective announced that the series of events scheduled for WrestleMania week will be postponed to a later date. The Collective was set to feature events such as Joey Janela's Spring Break, Josh Barnett's Bloodsport, Effy's Big Gay Brunch and more. The Collective was set to run from Apr. 2nd through Apr. 4th.
We have long dreaded this announcement but also known it was inevitable, just not in this form.
The 2020 Collective is official *Postponed*. These events will be rescheduled together on a Date(s) TBD as soon as possible.
Today's developments signal an equally devastating blow for our organization, our performers, our partners, and also our fans. It presents significant challenges to both our immediate and long term futures, but with it brings hope in the face of the overwhelming support we have received from the wrestling community. We are presented with an opportunity to make history on the other side of this crushing global pandemic.
The Collective and all its partners are determined to see this through to the finish line. *When* The Collective happens, it will be authentic and true, and take place in front of real fans. You will get everything your expect from The Collective, from the heart, because that's what you deserve. Thank you for believing in us, because we believe in you, and we believe in INDEPENDENT wrestling.
