While Sunday night’s “Future Stars of Wrestling” MECCA VI event was supposed to feature Willie Mack vs. Brian Pillman Jr. in the main event, Pillman said he was experiencing “flu-like symptoms” and was unable to attend. He issued the following statement:
“I regret to inform my fans that I will be unable to make this show today. After coming home from a long week of vacation and wrestling I am exhibiting some flu-like symptoms. It is in my best interest and the interest of my peers and fans to remain home. Please tune in on @FiteTV.”
Pillman later said he doesn’t believe he has the coronavirus, but he’s opting to isolate himself. He said,
“I do not think I have COVID-19 but I have been on the road since March 7th and finally got home last night. Been through various countries and airports, and my immune system is just worn down. Flu or cold, I just hope everyone respects my decision to isolate myself at this time.”
Also, former WWE Superstar Matt Hardy did not appear at the event due to travel issues.
