Pro Wrestling Guerrilla’s co-owner has explained a personal issue that has impacted the number of events the promotion has held this year.

Super Dragon, who is also the main booker for PWG, took to X late on Friday night to give the update. He said:

I know a lot of you have been wondering what is going on with PWG and why there haven’t been many events this year. My girlfriend has been very sick and battling an aggressive cancer since earlier this year. It’s been incredibly difficult for me to focus on anything else.

Recently things took a turn for the worse, and I need to take some time away from wrestling. There will be no more PWG events this year. We will return as soon as possible in 2024. Thank you for all your support.

The only PWG events this year have been January’s Battle of Los Angeles 2023 and August’s Mystery Vortex 2023.

Founded in 2003 in Los Angeles, California, PWG has been a hotbed of talent. It has long been known for fostering emerging prospects as well as pulling in big names for its events.

The promotion gained high-profile recognition this year when Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens paid tribute to it at WrestleMania, with their ring gear sporting a variation on the PWG logo.

At the time, Kevin Owens said:

I’d like to thank Excalibur and Super Dragon. The fact that WrestleMania is in Los Angeles is huge for us and the gear we’ll be wearing for our match, will have a little nod to PWG. Without Super Dragon, we would not be where we are today. 

We at POST Wrestling extend our best wishes to Super Dragon and his partner.
