Great news for UK and EU based wrestling fans as they will now be able to attended AEW Full Gear and WWE Survivor Series.
The United States are set to relax travel restrictions from November onwards, meaning that fans can attend the upcoming shows.
Vaccinated fans will now be able to travel to the US providing they have received two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. Under the new rules anyone travelling into the US will have to provide proof of vaccination before boarding, alongside proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within three days of their flight.
The news means an end to nearly two years of COVID-19 related restrictions.
Commenting on the news, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson described the new rules as a “fantastic boost.” Speaking in New York, Johnson confirmed that the restrictions had been lifted quicker than expected.
AEW Full Gear is now scheduled to take place on Saturday, November 13th. The show was initially slated for November 6th, but was moved due to a clash with UFC 268.
The first ever Full Gear pay-per-view was held in 2019 in Baltimore, Maryland. In 2020, the event was headlined by Jon Moxley vs. Eddie Kingston in an “I Quit” Match.
Meanwhile, Survivor Series is set to take place on November 21st. It was reported back in July that the event would be held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The report also suggested that The Rock would be returning to WWE in some capacity at the show.
The 2021 edition of the event marks 25 years since The Rock made his in-ring debut at Madison Square Garden in 1996.
The first-ever Survivor Series was held in 1987 and has become a WWE institution in the years that followed. It’s the company’s second-longest running event behind WrestleMania.
