WWE takes important steps to protect COVID-19 talent in upcoming recordings


As previously reported on this link, WWE is planning another long run of WWE NXT, RAW and SmackDown recordings from the empty WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida this week. Our previous report also indicated how they planned to “take over” another hotel in the area, to keep talent, and record “waves” to follow CDC guidelines for the COVID-19 epidemic.

WWE is reported to be taking additional security measures in the Performance Center tapes as it continues to fight the coronavirus pandemic.

According to PWInsider, WWE plans to change the ropes, turnbuckles, aprons and canvas after each game. They also plan to carry out a complete disinfection of the WWE Performance Center during their work.

Stay tuned for more updates to this week’s WWE TV recordings.
