So hilarious this hasn’t been cancelled yet.
Sadly if they “postpone” until March it may not even be able to happen then. So sad what is happening.

I'm just spitballin' here but I wonder if Big Event will have guests spread out throughout the entire hotel and bring in a few customers at a time. Once your in, you have to get everyone in one shot and once you leave there's no headed back in.

That's the only workaround I see

I still don't think it will work. The hotel will already be at capacity considering the many, many other guests who stay there. I just don't see how this works logistically.

I doubt this happens in November, you think in March? If not maybe they actually do it in the summer?

November ain’t happening. They couldn’t even spread it around the hotel, they only rent the space they rent, getting more would cost more. March won’t happen either if leading scientists get it right.

What do you mean March won't happen if scientists get it right?

It means we aren't rushing out a vaccine

I’m surprised this hasn’t officially been cancelled. I’m sure a lot of the talent that was supposed to do this will sign at wrestling universe instead unless there is another lockdown.

Still no official cancellation. They are dodging all Facebook posts & DMs about the status of the show. However, I found it suspicious wrestlingfigs removed the listing for the show earlier this week while still updating with other signings/conventions/etc.

The fact of the matter is this: it is highly unlikely they will be allowed to run the convention with any signficant capacity.

Someone asked in a FB post yesterday about a cancellation and their response was "most likely yes.. queens is not allowing large gatherings". As far as I can tell, NYC is still classified as in Phase 4 of COVID recovery and that permits a maximum of 50 people for a mass gathering, so yeah this isn't happening.

I'm sure they're waiting until the last possible minute because they don't want to start issuing refunds on admissions and tickets for their guests until they absolutely have to or until they get their deposit back from the hotel perhaps? Another issue may be them trying to work out a system where admissions are valid for the next event, but they can't really even contemplate when that event would be allowed to occur?

A few vendor guests have already been moved to the Wrestling Universe (Candice Michelle, Brooke Adams, Thunder Rosa) and I wouldn't be surprised if more were when the event is officially cancelled.
