Report: WWE Working On Backup Plans Due To COVID-19

WWE is reportedly working on backup plans in the case of another lockdown brought on by the new rise in COVID-19 cases.

This comes following reports that AEW was “extremely concerned” about the developments, but WWE is obviously in the same boat really.

Speaking on the Mat Men podcast, Andrew Zarian said:

“Everybody is concerned, it’s not just AEW. WWE is very concerned as well and they do have secondary plans. They are in motion just in case.

“AEW has an easy game plan, they just go back to Daily’s Place, but for WWE, it’s so heavy on touring that they really don’t have a safe bet. What I was told is that they are looking at six or seven buildings that they could possibly bounce around from if things get closed down a little bit. They would want to be able to tour but more controlled. This is on the WWE side, I know that everybody is concerned.

“All sports, any touring brand is concerned over this, it’s not just an AEW thing. Everybody needs to have a discussion. Now whether or not they are in panic mode, I don’t think anybody is in panic mode right now but it is something to be concerned about.”

We’ll keep you updated if there are any more developments, as, like last time, different states and areas are probably going to have different restrictions.
