According to a report from Pwinsider, the reason Saturday night’s NWA Hard Times 2 pay-per-view had such a small crowd was because they found out on November 30th that only 90 fans would be allowed at the show since GBS Studios in Atlanta, GA takes government funding and thus was obligated to follow more restrictive standards. The promotion had to refund many fans who had tickets and they had Kyle Davis personally apologize to those fans and sent them this statement from NWA President Billy Corgan:
“To say the ongoing pandemic has been a challenge in running live events is an understatement, as it has for anyone who has been adversely affected by what remains this ongoing health and safety crisis. And though this latest setback will not deter us from going ‘on with the show’, we appreciate your understanding today so as to not have to turn anyone away at the door; as this is certainly a circumstance beyond our control.”
In other news, Raven has started with the promotion as a color commentator for their new weekly TV series, NWA USA.
