For those who have asked, Major League Wrestling's staff and talent are already in Southern California or Tijuana, Mexico for the MLW vs. AAA event tomorrow in Mexico.  Talent have been advised that even though they are in Mexico, if they do not feel comfortable performing, they do not have to perform.  As of now, that event is still on as there have not been any cancellations in Mexico due to the coronavirus.

MLW's offices in the New Rochelle, NY area are near the current coronavirus containment zone but not within it.  MLW advised all office staff to take this past Monday off and not come into the office as the area schools are all closed and MLW wanted staff to remain with their families.

No upcoming MLW events are postponed or canceled, although given the way of the world this week, that could change.

MLW is in full support of Tom Lawlor's return to MMA as part of the PFL.  They do no expect it will cause any changes in their booking plans but if he needs to take a pause on pro wrestling at times to focus on MMA, the feeling is it will help his longevity within MLW.

MLW had planned on announcing autograph signings with talents in Tampa over Wrestlemania week today but those plans are off due to concerns over the coronavirus pandemic.

Several MLW talents who were slated to head to Japan for international dates have had those plans canceled, obviously, due to the coronavirus.

Major League Wrestling will team with AAA this Friday 3/13 in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico for the AAA vs. MLW Super Series at Auditorio Fausto Gutierrez, featuring:

*Los Parks vs. Psycho Clown, Psicosis and Niño Hamburguesa
*AAA Trios Tag Team Title Match:: Hijo del Vikingo, Myzteziz Jr. and Octagon Jr. vs. Injustice
*MLW National Openweight Title Match: Alex Hammerstone vs. Laredo Kid
*Team Filthy (“Filthy” Tom Lawlor & Dominic Garrini) vs. Xtreme Tigre & Puma King
*Tijuana Street Fight: Savio Vega & Mance Warner vs. Pagano & Mortiz
*Hart Foundation vs. Texano Jr. & Rey Escorpión
*Poder de Norte vs. Black Destiny, Fantastick and Rayo Star
Also scheduled to compete: Richard Holliday, Chessman, Averno and more.
