New Japan Pro Wrestling issued the following press release officially announcing the cancellation of the Lion's Break Project 3 event that was scheduled for WrestleMania weekend. This is of course in response to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic that has been declared a national emergency, and forced cities like San Francisco to go into complete lockdown. Details are below.
Lion’s Break Project 3, which had been scheduled to take place as part of WrestleCon in Tampa, Florida on April 2, has been cancelled.
In response to the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak in the USA, the decision was made on Monday March 16 local time for WrestleCon to be cancelled, and with it, NJPW’s participation, including Lion’s Break.
We apologise to fans who were looking forward to seeing Lion’s Break Project 3, and appreciate your understanding, as organizers do their best to protect public safety.
Refunds will be issued to ticket holders in the coming days; the procedure will be detailed here on NJPW1972.com, as well as Wrestlecon’s own official website.
Thank you for your continued support of New Japan Pro-Wrestling.
