Didn't WWE just donate like $15-20m to some political organization linked to the FL governor the day WWE was deemed essential?

Linked to both the governor and Trump. I'm happy I don't financially support this company anymore and only stream what few shows I watch.

I love watching old wrestling too much...

Now I feel less guilty supporting them. 

 

Stream is limited to one device at a time so dont give this **** out.

All the wrestling dirt sheets have been calling for WWE to stop putting on these shows. I think they forgot there would be consequences especially since there is no money from live events and ppvs. The Indies are pretty much dead right now. I'm sure some of them will be back when they start up live shows.

I wonder why they're not demanding AEW stop running empty building shows.

Honestly, as long as they are taking proper precautions to the nth degree, I am fine with them continuing to perform.

I also read that the contracts WWE has with NBC and FOX stipulate there must be a certain number of live shows broadcast per year. If they dont reach that number the contracts could be voided. Would NBC and FOX do that knowing what WWE is up against during this pandemic? I guess Vince is not willing to take that chance.

Well NBC Universal is the USA Network. They are not thinking about getting rid of the WWE. Fox? Who knows.

But live shows need CROWDS. The can say the WWE workers are essential, but the crowd? That just seems idiotic to let that many people come together during a pandemic.

The WWE needs shows. Other than merchandise, and the network, it's their only source of revenue right now. Not having the crowds is visually off putting, but they will do shows as long as they can without them.

WWE has decided to not run live weekly shows, probably due to all the bad press they were getting. They will begin taping two editions of their shows beginning Saturday, April 25.

The networks told the WWE that their contract wouldn't be affected by them taping shows.

Curtis Axel, the worst Intercontinental Champion in recent memory and one of the worst ever, was cut as well.

I actually liked him. He was never eliminated in the RR!
