There’s been a great deal of talk on Wednesday about what WWE will do now that Florida has issued a state-wide “stay-at-home” mandate that will, undoubtedly, affect WWE’s production out of the WWE Performance Center. Before the news came down, one of WWE’s Superstars talked about whether or not WWE should halt production.
In an interview with SI.com, Seth Rollins was asked if he thinks WWE should still be running shows during the Coronavirus pandemic. Rollins said, “I don’t know. I’m not a medical expert.” He added that airports are open but asks if they should be? He just doesn’t know how to answer that. For himself, he’s just doing what he can to stay clean, away from people and ensure this thing doesn’t spread.
I feel great. Knock on wood, I’ve been able to avoid this thing. I know a lot of families and people who have been affected by it. It’s extremely contagious and it’s very dangerous. I wish I had more answers. I wish I knew what was the right thing to do.
He noted that he’s aware WWE plans to re-evaluate their situation after Mania and said see where we’re gonna go from here. “Right now, I’m very humble and grateful that I have a job that still needs me. A lot of Americans are not in that boat and their futures are uncertain.”
Knowing that a lot of people can’t work, he’s glad he’s able to help provide some entertainment and says, “we’re being productive in doing something right.”
Of course, these comments came before the news of Florida’s new ban. Not sure if his opinion has changed based on that new information.
