“Grateful to be vaccinated and boosted and have only mild symptoms,” FendrickLamar tweeted. “Absolutely captivated by not being able to finish the event – by far the funniest thing I’ve ever had at a giant tournament. I want nothing but the best for the cast and the cast. “

For the rest of the event, only players, commentators and production crew members will be allowed to participate in Smash Summit 13 and they must also show a negative COVID-19 test to enter the site. The other participants receive repayment to the value of half of what they paid for their VIP pass.
