WWE’s biggest event of the year will bring a ton of people into Tampa. The coronavirus has popped up in the area as more cases continue to appear around the United States.

ESPN was able to get a statement from WWE regarding the coronavirus outbreak. The company is monitoring the situation, and they are working closely with their partners in Tampa.

WrestleMania 36 is still going on as scheduled on April 5th.

“The health and safety of our fans, performers and employees are our top priorities and we are monitoring the situation closely with our partners and government officials in Tampa Bay.”

“We remain committed to hosting WrestleMania at Raymond James Stadium on Sunday, April 5, and like other entertainment properties in the U.S., there are currently no plans to cancel or postpone our upcoming events.”

WWE advised their Superstars prior to Raw in a backstage meeting. The company is aware of the coronavirus, but it is not changing their WrestleMania plans.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
