Hurricane Irma is bearing down on Florida after ravaging the Caribbean, and the Governor has declared a state of emergency. Certain areas are under a mandatory evacuation order, the Miami Dolphins season opener has been postponed, and people are being told to batten down the hatches and stay home if they can not get out.
And now WWE has postponed several NXT live events.
The WWE's statement is as follows:
NXT Live Events on Friday, Sept. 8, in Daytona Beach; Saturday, Sept. 9, in Crystal River; Thursday, Sept. 14, in Lakeland; and Friday, Sept. 15, in Dade City, have been postponed. The Sept. 15 Live Event in Dade City has been rescheduled for Thursday, Oct. 5, and tickets that have been previously purchased for the show will be honored that night.
No word on whether the other events will be rescheduled, but we will keep you updated, and if you are reading this in Florida, please stay safe.
