Defiant Wrestling has issued a statement on Twitter announcing that they’re closing their doors.

It has been an absolutely incredible journey over the past three years, but it is with a heavy heart that we today announce that the journey must come to an end.⁰⁰
To each and every one of you who worked on a show, attended a show, or watched a show… thank you.

Bummer. I do watch some of their stuff on Youtube, but I will say that their product has suffered a lot recently, mostly having young talent and really no star power to speak of. They lost a lot of talent to WWE NXT UK, and other indie promotions. Hard to keep things going. I did really enjoy their product when they did the World Cup and when Drew Galloway was their Champion.
