AEW 'moving forward' with shows amid coronavirus concerns

Sports and entertainment entities are continuing to work through the coronavirus/COVID-19 outbreak, both in the United States and abroad.

Last week, WWE announced they will continue with this year's WrestleMania as planned and Tuesday, AEW announced a similar approach as it relates to upcoming Dynamite events.

"All AEW events are currently moving forward as scheduled.  Of course, the safety and well-being of AEW fans, partners and talent is always our top priority, so we will continue to closely monitor the rapidly evolving situation related to COVID-19 and be guided by government officials, health organizations and venue management.  AEW will update ticket purchasers if there are any changes to the event schedule, and we encourage everyone in the AEW family to be good to themselves – and each other – by taking preventative actions as recommended by the CDC and WHO," the statement read.

Conversely, the Polish-based MMA KSW announced they are cancelling their March 21st show in that country. While not a household name stateside, the organization has strong attendance for their events.

That follows New Japan Pro Wrestling's cancellation earlier today of the remainder of the New Japan Cup tournament and all events through March 22nd.

As of this writing, all other U.S. based combat sports events are happening as planned.
