It was reported last month that due to the Coronavirus pandemic, WWE was only bringing four of its producers to each of the TV tapings. All of these agents were in the Florida area, meaning people didn’t have to travel across the country to make shows.
This was certainly a good idea. However, it has emerged that WWE may be relaxing its Coronavirus prevention measures as several producers and backstage agents were brought back to TV this week.
Speaking on PWInsider Elite, Mike Johnson noted that several backstage producers/agents, including former WWE stars Kurt Angle and Jeff Jarrett were brought in for the taping this week:
“They had a lot of of the agents back this week who hadn’t been on the road. They were just using Florida agents. I was told Jeff Jarrett was there last night. I was told Kurt Angle was there. So they are starting to bring people back on the road.”
WWE’s decision to relax its Coronavirus prevention measures despite being very close to or at the peak of the disease has left many people scratching their heads. However, this certainly isn’t the only decision in recent weeks to be criticised online.
It emerged over the weekend that despite saying only “essential personnel” will be at these live shows, WWE brought several stars who weren’t booked to wrestle or appear SmackDown to the Performance Center last week.
This is just another example of WWE being too careless when it comes to Coronavirus, especially after news of a positive test was leaked last week.
