NEW YORK — Major League Wrestling has moved its May 2 event in Dallas/Fort Worth at the NYTEX Sports Centre to Saturday October 3.

All tickets purchased for the originally scheduled date will be honored at this time.

League officials are continually monitoring the on-going coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic. The status to delay additional events will be decided in the weeks ahead. 

The league remains focused on a return after suspending promoting live events, however is proceeding with an abundance of caution.

MLW has considered many scenarios but is not close to rolling out a plan given that the pandemic has yet to reach its apex in the United States.
