WWE Employees Disappointed By How Company Is Handling WrestleMania Situation

WrestleMania has a very high likelihood of being cancelled this year. The company hasn’t done it and neither has the city of Tampa. The coronavirus situation might give them no choice.

It’s unclear what the real hold-up is. Tampa officials will meet next week about postponing or cancelling WrestleMania. This situation isn’t getting miraculously better in a few days. It will take a lot more concentrated effort and time.

When it comes to how WWE employees are taking this situation, they’re not very happy. Most employees are now working from home. They also view the company dragging their feet over cancelling the show of shows as a bit disappointing as Brad Shepard reports.

The latest on the #WWE/coronavirus situation, per a source:

– Most employees are now working from home with no timetable.
– Emails from HR have been vague and aren’t providing answers or clear direction.
– The news to decide on WrestleMania next week is seen as disappointing.

WWE hasn’t actually called off any of their shows yet. The local authorities have done the cancelling for them.

Dave Meltzer speculated on Wrestling Observer Radio that WWE might not want to be the ones to cancel the show because it could be an insurance issue. Technicalities about who calls off the show might determine whether WWE can collect on some insurance coverage. That is speculation, but it is plausible.

We’re not certain about what will happen down the line. We just thank you for reading all about it right here at Ringside News.
