The Prudential Center in Newark, NJ, the scheduled home for the March 25 "Blood and Guts" episode of AEW Dynamite, has postponed all events through the end of March, according to a statement Thursday.
The statement, which was posted to the website of building tenants The New Jersey Devils of the National Hockey League, reads, "The New Jersey Devils and Prudential Center are supportive of the NHL's decision to suspend the season. Similarly, in consultation with our live event partners, promoters and artists, we have postponed all events at the Prudential Center through the end of March. The health and well-being of our fans, players, performers, artists, staff members, partners and communities are of the utmost importance, and we remain in close communication with public health, state and local officials during this challenging period.
As we navigate the coming weeks, we recognize that our Devils and Prudential Center staff members are family and the heartbeat of the organization. As such, we are committed to assisting our arena associates through this period.
"In this time of need, we need to band together and take care of people," Managing Partner Josh Harris stated, "Our teams, our cities and the leagues in which we operate are a family, and we are committed to looking out for one another."
The Devils also extend our sincere gratitude and appreciation to the many talented doctors, nurses, medical professionals and emergency services personnel who are working tirelessly to address this matter of public health.
We will provide further updates as soon as possible."
AEW Dynamite is already being forced to pull out of next week's booking at the Blue Cross Arena in Rochester, NY.
