While the majority of sports, shows or events are all canceled or forced to cancel by the local authorities, now WWE, AEW, and the UFC are almost the only ones to continue their program (s) weekly (s) and live.
A decision that may displease many fans but which can also make people happy who can continue to watch their favorite program during their quarantine. Today a fan questioned Cody Rhodes on Twitter asking if it was really necessary to continue the storylines without crowds and that he was disappointed with this decision. Cody replied as follows:
“Many people are sitting at home. Some are afraid… all are bored. As all the leaders of the community have made their decision, the entertainment leaders must follow (safely). People need to laugh, cry, forget, love, they need all these things. It’s my personal opinion, we shouldn’t stop ourselves. ”
Indeed, wrestling allows you to experience emotions while the fans are emotionally involved in the various storylines. At present AEW still has a plan to continue its activities every Wednesday with Dynamite, but with shows that will be without an audience and for the moment will take place at Daily Place in Jacksonville in Florida.
A lot of folks are sitting at home. Some scared…all bored. Just like real community leaders have come forward, entertainment leaders have to follow suit(safely). People need to laugh, cry, forget, love, all the good stuff. My personal opinion, we shouldn’t hold back.
