WWE Named 'Essential Business' By Florida Governor https://t.co/4TZjhx0Rq3— TMZ (@TMZ) April 13, 2020
- Just when you think the WWE can't get any worse they go and get named an essential business by the Flordia Governor. This means that no matter how long this pandemic goes on the wrestlers and crew of WWE's shows are expected to work.
- The mayor of Orange County was asked why the WWE was allowed to keep filming while other non-essential companies have been forced to close their doors. "With some conversation with the Governor’s office regarding the Governor’s order, they were deemed an essential business. And so, therefore, they were allowed to remain open." He did not go into detail on
- The WWE says it is taking every precaution and filming on closed sets. Even though just a few days ago the WWE confirmed it's first case of COVID-19 (while not a wrestler is an on-air talent). They claim the person caught it from medical personal, they've recovered and it hasn't spread.
