AAW Wrestling has announced that their scheduled Fight For The Future tapings has been canceled because of a Shelter In Place order by the state of Illinois. The company was raising money for the tapings and hoping to showcase the web series in April and help out wrestlers who have no work during the global pandemic. The company is still asking for donations to help the talent they were hoping to give work later this month.
This will shut down the scheduled tapings.
We couldn't be any more frustrated with ourselves by not being able to pull this off.
The donation site will stay in place so we can get money to the talent affected by this. If you're able to help we please ask that you do. https://t.co/hwetOEpO3u

AAW has also been trying to help fans in this time of crisis, releasing full past PPVs onto their YouTube channel. With talents like Matt Hardy, Sami Calihan, Chris Hero and Tommaso Ciampa on those cards, it’s certainly worth looking into their archives if you want to watch some wrestling while stuck at home.
