WWE Issues Statement About Returning To Live Shows

It was reported previously that WWE had decided to broadcast live shows again instead of taped ones, and the company has now released a statement on the matter.

It says that it’s more important than ever to provide entertainment to families during tough times like these, and reiterates that everything is carried out in a safe and responsible manner.

WWE’s statement reads as follows, via ESPN:

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.

It was also reported, and confirmed by WWE, last night that someone in the company had tested positive for coronavirus.

Just a couple of updates about what we know – that person was not an in-ring worker, and is said to be doing fine having made a recovery.
