Report: MLW's New York City Return Set For 2/4 Will Be Postponed

As is typical amid the “new normal,” everything in the world of professional wrestling remains fluid as promotions continue to search for new ways to provide content for their audiences during these difficult times.

Major League wrestling had announced eight months ago that they would return to the Melrose Ballroom in New York City on February 4. However, according to new reports, this event will 100% be postponed.

Mike Johnson of PWInsider reports that the Court Bauer-led organization will be postponing the return to New York City with an announcement expected to be forthcoming.

A previous report by Johnson noted that MLW was keeping a close eye on Broadway as the feeling is Broadway unions won't allow any shows to open prematurely, and if they start to open up and run intimate theaters, chances are greater that professional wrestling will be allowed to do the same. 

Ultimately, MLW reportedly wants to see how things play out with the COVID-19 vaccine. Reportedly, the internal hope is that the second or third quarter of this year will allow for a return to New York City.

Fightful will continue to monitor the story and report any and all updates.
