OTT Scrappermania 6 Cancelled Due To Coronavirus, Cites Government Advice

Over The Top Wrestling is the latest wrestling promotion to cancel an event due to the coronavirus pandemic, as they have called off this weekend’s Scrappermania 6.

The promotion posted a statement and said due to the local government advising against public gatherings of more than 100 people it is in their best interest to cancel the show. David Starr versus Jon Moxley was advertised for the event; OTT says refunds for the weekend’s shows will be issued in “due course.”

As previously stated, our number one priority at OTT is the health and wellbeing of our audiences, performers and staff during COVID-19 outbreak. Following official government advice against indoor gatherings of more than 100 people, we unfortunately must cancel both this weekend’s Scrappermania events. We understand and share the disappointment this will cause to so many, and can only offer our sincere apologies for any and all inconvenience caused. We did everything in our power to keep these shows viable, with significant contingency plans put in place this week. Despite these best efforts, we must prioritize safety and follow the expert advice. Refunds will be issued in due course, please bear with us as we tackle the logistics of cancelling our biggest show of the year.

We’re as gutted as you are.

We’ll be back.
