In the wake of recent worldwide events, an emergency press conference was called in LAW’s offices today in East Los Angeles. LAW majority owner and president Marilyn Bellamy spoke with several sports journalists alongside LAW General Manager Madam Vega, and JET President Hanako Nakamura via video call regarding how their companies will be dealing with the COVID-19 coronavirus epidemic. Bellamy has confirmed that Lethal Hearts II will go on as planned, and Nakamura confirmed the same for Cinderella Story. Both companies will be taking proper precautions and advise for any ticket holders who are exhibiting flu-like symptoms to stay home. Bellamy added that they would be fully reimbursed as well. Nakamura also stressed that JET will not be accepting ticket purchases from outside of Japan as a way to reduce high-risk international traffic amongst the audience.
When asked about how this affects the yearly Lethal Takeover supershow, which is being advertised for Walter Pyramid on May 9th. Bellamy stated that after their season ending events, both LAW and JET will be taking a month hiatus in April in order to assess the situation. If push came to shove, JET would send over a limited amount of their roster, possibly affecting the number of booked matches at the event. Bellamy stated that Miss Manami wanted the IJWF titles to be defended at the event, along with a match between whoever are the LAW and JET champions at that time. In addition to this news, Bellamy added that starting in season three, Thursday Night LAW will be moving its shows to the Globe Theater in Downtown Los Angeles, a venue they will be sharing with SoCal Pro. Their contract with SCS Warehouse has ended, and the board wants to attract a larger audience. Nakamura confirmed that JET will still adhere to a touring schedule with most of its “home shows” remaining at Shin-Kiba 1st Ring.
During the conference Bellamy also hinted at a “big surprise” that will be revealed at Lethal Takeover regarding LAW’s future. If it’s anything JET’s recent booking decisions, we could be seeing a fourth title added to the brand! There’s also talks of various contract negotiations. Nothing has been confirmed but everything from the Shieldmaidens to Cartier of Thot Chocolate has been thrown around. Some say that JET owner and LAW minority owner Stephanie Matsuda may be behind these contractual talks but nothing is known for certain. Please check in with The Alliance Network for more updates.
