Several WWE superstars have reportedly refused to come to work at the company’s Performance Center in Orlando, Florida, due to the delicate situation with the coronavirus outbreak that is coming to the United States. This was advanced by journalist Dave Meltzer in the last radio program of the Wrestling Observer.
The journalist gave the example of Paige, who had to have appeared in person on the last SmackDown program to announce the fight for the brand’s female title, but finally appeared on Skype. The reason, as Meltzer pointed out, is that Paige refused to travel due to the pandemic.
“Paige made the announcement via Skype because she did not come and I do not know if she could have, but they have explained to me that, as the situation has worsened over the days, she was not willing to take a flight and come to Orlando,” she explained. Meltzer. Also, it seems that WWE is being permissive to the coronavirus issue.
“There are several wrestlers and personalities from WWE who have not wanted to go to the Performance Center because of all this. The company is being very respectful of it and they are allowing whoever they want not to come. ”
This would have been one of the reasons why WWE would have decided to record the previous Raw and SmackDown programs of the following two weeks and also the recording of everything. the Wrestlemania 36 event, scheduled to take place this week. For the first time, all of their workers will be able to watch the event from their homes. At the moment, there is no information that WWE will perform after its great event.
