America is in bad shape due to the current coronavirus pandemic. For some reason the country wasn’t prepared even though the first recorded case in America was January 20th, just 10 days after the first case was recorded in China.
Vince McMahon represented WWE in a call with Donald Trump today. Practically every other major sporting league was represented too.

The social distancing guidelines are likely to continue and it will be a long time before anything can go back to anything that resembles being “normal.”
