OTT was scheduled to present their ‘ScrapperMania 6’ show on March 14th from the National Stadium in Dublin, Ireland but due to the Coronavirus outbreak and advice from the government about rules and regulations moving forward concerning the virus, they’ve been forced to cancel ScrapperMania 6 weekend.
OTT released a statement on their official Twitter account this morning which reads as followed:
“As previously stated, our number one priority at OTT is the health and wellbeing of our audiences, performers and staff during this 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 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.”
OTT’s ScrapperMania was going to be headlined by OTT World Champion David Starr versus AEW World Champion Jon Moxley. The card also included Scotty Davis defending the NLW Championship against Omari, PAC vs. LJ Cleary, along with Sammii Jayne defending her OTT Women’s Title against Amy Allonsy.
Last night, a travel suspension was instituted for 30 days and those who are traveling from European countries into the U.S., excluding the United Kingdom, can not enter the United States. Another spotlighted show in Ireland in the coming weeks is the NXT UK brand’s TakeOver show in Dublin in late April.
