“Well, goddamn the Coronavirus is in Japan and they’ve cancelled a lot of shows and it’s a big story,” Dave Meltzer said on Wrestling Observer Radio.

STARDOM has cancelled “a whole bunch of shows” including events on February 22nd and 23rd. “Technically everything for the rest of the month. They also cancelled two shows on March 14th in Osaka.

It was further noted that STARDOM is going to run their March 8th event on streaming pay-per-view, but it will be an empty arena with zero fans in attendance.

One Championship Wrestling is also holding another event in an empty arena on February 28th in Singapore.
