    WrestleMania 36

    I imagine most of the talent is losing a huge chunk of money by the show not being rescheduled instead. Honestly though, the way the winds are blowing they will be lucky to get Summerslam.

    WrestleMania 36

    The one saving grace for WWE is that for all I know they could have WrestleMania in the can already.

    Greatest year ever by a wrestler

    We'll never know, but I'm amazed when I go through Lou Thesz's matches and not only see him wrestling in a different city, but wrestling a different opponent almost every single night. Given what we've seen of Thesz if he's getting good matches out of most of these guys, it's a heck of an accomplishment.
  4. Oil prices have tanked. A possible long term effect on this. Saudi Arabia is cutting government spending by 5%. A twice a year wrestling extravaganza looks far less attractive on the balance sheet.

    2020 Wrestlemania Weekend

    Ideally if nothing else you try and restrict contact between anyone but the wrestlers in the match. Don't run a battle royal under any circumstances. Maybe you can get away with a tag match. But keep it limited.
  6. Or at least yell over at commentary, "Lawler you bastard!"
  7. I wonder if there’s a bait and switch going on regarding Wrestlemania at the performance center. Two hours in and there hasn’t been any actual physical contact. The only sensible reason to have the show at the performance center is to give them leverage in negotiations.

    The Yankees had a minor league player test positive for coronavirus. Relevant because the Yankees train in Tampa.

    I think WWE is absolutely waiting for the authorities to cancel for financial reasons. I can't say I blame them, it's a huge event and they've got five nights of events? But at some point common sense should intervene. Everyone knows there's not a chance in hell of this happening.

    Dominos are falling today. Major League Soccer is suspending, NBA has suspended, every college conference has called off play. MLB will announce shortly it is suspending operations. I would be really surprised to see WWE continue to run events.

    A week from now when the extent of cases becomes apparent I think we will have a better handle of how this outbreak will play out, what effect it has on the health care system, etc. I kind of think this decision will be made for WWE one way or another.
  12. The start of the baseball season in Japan is postponed. I imagine that doesn't bode well for the wrestling scene in the immediate future.
  13. Tbh, even if the show was perfect the weekday Noon ET start is a hell of a barrier for North American fans. i noted elsewhere that Goldberg’s performance may lead to a fan backlash at WrestleMania. The last two Saudi matches have really exposed him.
  14. Wasn’t exactly impressed with Goldberg’s performance. There’s a certain amount of satisfaction though in seeing a Jewish person win a world championship in Saudi Arabia.

    Could part of it have been Abby working All Japan and Vince working with New Japan?
