It had been recently reported that the WWE wanted to ditch the idea of taped shows and instead moving back to live broadcasts.
ESPN quoted the following statement directly from WWE:
We believe it is now more important than ever to provide people with a diversion from these hard times. We are producing content on a closed set with only essential personnel in attendance following appropriate guidelines while taking additional precautions to ensure the health and wellness of our performers and staff. As a brand that has been woven into the fabric of society, WWE and its Superstars bring families together and deliver a sense of hope, determination and perseverance.ESPN
This news breaks after it was reported WWE superstars were given written letters of permission incase they were stopped by police on their way to the performance centre.
Will this be looked at again since an on screen member of staff has been diagnosed positive for Covid-19?
With the whole world at a stand still, wrestling still going on in some form is a welcome relief to many but can it continue to defy the parameters set out by the government? These are unprecedented times and putting wrestlers at serious, needless risk seems irresponsible.
