Florida’s Governor Classifies The WWE An Essential Business

Posted by at 3:40 pm on April 15, 2020

The WWE will reportedly be allowed to continue filming its weekly television shows after Florida governor Ron DeSantis declared the sports entertainment brand an ‘essential business’.

The declaration comes amidst the state’s stay-at-home order caused by the coronavirus pandemic. The company had begun filming shows without audiences at their privately-owned Performance Center in Orlando once more states began banning large gatherings to prevent further spread of the virus.

WWE also reportedly pre-taped their flagship pay-per-view, WrestleMania, ahead of Orlando’s stay-at-home order in addition to pre-taping multiple episodes of their other shows. Segments of the show are now filmed in waves to limit the number of people in any given area at one time, and temperatures are being regularly taken.
