WWE and AEW might see some big returns soon. The novel coronavirus created a travel ban, but now they’re willing to make an exception.
The department of Homeland Security recently sent down a decree that will greatly help major athletic companies. Pro athletes, essential staff, and their dependents are exempt from any travel ban that applies to normal citizens.
The ruling was mostly done for Major League Baseball and the NHL. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that WWE and AEW can certainly benefit as well.
Now Superstars like Robert Roode, the Singh Bros, Pete Dunne, and Jordan Devlin can plausibly return to work.
The timing of this is ironic considering how WWE just figured out the final match in the NXT Cruiserweight Championship Tournament. That is the title Devlin had to relinquish due to the travel ban.
AEW could see stars like Pentagon, Pac, Jack Evans, Riho, Yuka Sakazaki, Bea Priestley, Jamie Hayter, Evil Uno and Stu Grayson return as well.
Brock Lesnar lives in Canada, but he was able to “pull strings” to make his WWE dates during the travel ban.
