WWE weekend house shows in Ohio, Toronto canceled


Both WWE house shows scheduled for this weekend have been canceled in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak.

The Coca-Cola Coliseum in Toronto, Canada released the following statement: "The WWE Live Road to WrestleMania SuperShow event scheduled for this Saturday, March 14 at Coca-Cola Coliseum in Toronto has been cancelled. Refunds are available at all points of purchase."

The Covelli Centre, which was scheduled to run the Sunday house show in Youngstown, posted the following statement on their Facebook page: “In accordance with the proclamation issued by Governor DeWine, the WWE live event scheduled for this Sunday, March 15 in Youngstown, Ohio has been canceled. Refunds are available at all points of purchase.”

Mike DeWine, governor of Ohio, has issued an order requiring there to be no spectators at indoor events. A UFC event scheduled for Columbus on March 28 is currently in question.

The spread of the coronavirus has had a huge effect on the pro wrestling and MMA industries, with most major shows being pulled. SmackDown, which was scheduled to take place tomorrow in Detroit, Michigan will instead be held at the WWE Performance Center in Florida with no audience. Paige and John Cena were originally advertised for the show.
