The United Wrestling Network kicked off the first edition of their weekly Prime Time Live pay-per-views in September. That first show was headlined by Nick Aldis defending the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship against Mike Bennett. Fast forward to present day, on tonight’s Prime Time Live PPV, UWN President Dave Marquez stated that the Prime Time Live specials are now suspended until 2021.

Marquez added that the program is taking a break for the holidays as the COVID cases continue to rise in America. UWN produces their show in California at Thunder Studios. Marquez said that they want to present the best product possible and do not want to continue switching lineups at the last minute due to COVID.

“We will be back with more action!”
