WWE is now considered “essential.” They previously limited the amount of backstage staff who traveled to Performance Center tapings. That changed this week.
Vince McMahon was in a terrible mood on Monday. He has a lot going on from WWE’s closed set tapings to the XFL closing their doors. He had more people around as well.
Mike Johnson noted on PW Insider Elite audio that WWE called in producers from out of state who were previously told to stay home. Jeff Jarrett and Kurt Angle were specifically mentioned as two people who WWE brought in for this week’s show.
“They had a lot of of the agents back this week who hadn’t been on the road. They were just using Florida agents. I was told Jeff Jarrett was there last night. I was told Kurt Angle was there. So they are starting to bring people back on the road.”
WWE might need more minds around to pitch ideas at a time like this. The empty arena shows are working to get content on television, but the viewership needs a real boost if they want to have a fan base whenever society opens up again.
