If there was ever a time to do a multi-day Mania, this would be the ideal opportunity to do so.

Also guess WWE won't be following the CDC's 50 people limit recommendation since it would have made running Mania practically impossible without major changes made to the card.

Apparently the reason Mania is still going on as scheduled is all due to Vince and his stubbornness to not delay the show to a later date.

According to PWI, WWE management was in favor of a potential June 7th date since that would given them a better opportunity to hold the show under normal circumstances. Vince rejected that idea and demanded the show go on as scheduled regardless of the issues.

Cancel both battle Royals, or they could just tape them a day early.

I honestly bet everything gets taped ahead anyway, there's no need to do it live.

I'm betting the shows from the PC for the foreseeable future will be taped too, no need to do this stuff live

Was talking to a buddy at work about this. They could have combined WrestleMania and SummerSlam and done a two-day mega show. They boast "multiple main events" anyway so one for Saturday, one for Sunday.

Or that would've been too weird for them, I don't know.

Someone brought up a good point elsewhere online that WWE didn't even bother to toss out a bone to help their affiliated promotions based on a recent statement from WWN/EVOLVE for their Mania weekend events.

With this year's Hall of Fame ceremony and NXT Takeover Mania show being unofficially cancelled, that would have freed up two days for WWE's affiliated companies to salvage something for Mania weekend. Instead looks like WWE left them out to dry just like every other indie company impacted by today's news.

If it's really been budgeted for nine hours, why not just run it over the course of the next three weeks of Raw?

At least they'd get some ratings out of it.

Apparently Ali caused an accidental legal issue for Freelance Wrestling after he promoted their upcoming events on Twitter. These events are meant to help financially support indie wrestlers affected by the coronavirus and Ali has a past connection with the company.

WWE somehow found out about it and sent a Cease & Desist letter to the company since the logo they were using was similar to their old In Your House logo.

Probably just them wanting to limit the amount of people around the PC throughout the week and all the real focus going towards the main roster because of Mania.

Wouldn't be surprised if NXT officials also figured people likely are going to get bored of the same format for shows if they just did what RAW and Smackdown did this past week. At least in RAW and SD's case, they don't have a rival show airing at the same time so less worry of viewers tuning out.

I read that Vince doesn't like the empty arena matches. Still, seems dumb to not still have matches.

Hell they should just put employees in the stands. They have like 75 or so NXT people that don't appear on TV. Put them in the crowd, assuming WWE has access to tests like other sports leagues. Maybe 4 years down the road it can be a storyline "I was in the audience watching you at Wrestlemania 36, and at Wrestlemania 40 I am going defeat you!"

Keep in mind WWE are filming this in their own private building. The only people who can shut it down are the government and it’s been happening all over the country.

Even more likely, they’re in a race against the clock in terms of hoping someone on the roster doesn’t catch the virus.

I heard they were considering taking at their tv studio in Stamford as well. Maybe to limit exposure or to have time to disenfect between every match.

They also cancelled both battle royals so they are keeping it to less than 10 people like suggested. Hopefully they follow that backstage as well. Make sure the first match is gone and out of the building before the next match people even arrive.

Meanwhile despite WWE hitting Freelance Wrestling with a cease & desist letter and them cancelling their event anyways due to recent state government orders, Ali mentioned he's still donating the money he promised for all the talent who were booked for the show.

Boys, I haven't watched as much wrestling over the past year or so as I used to, but these empty arena shows just show how fucking terrible pro wrestling is. Not having a crowd to react to the moves or the entrances or the mic promos just make it look so so stupid. Empty arena matches as part of a storyline are actually pretty cool. Why in an empty arena are the wrestlers doing their full entrances, why are they even talking into a microphone? Running entire shows like this is awful. I literally can't watch. We all know it's fake, but this is making it look way more corny that it usually is. I actually feel sad about this.

AEW actually pulled it off. For being at an almost empty Daily's Place, they put on a great show. If you can track down this past Wednesday's show, watch it.

We were all expecting WWE to take a few ideas from that and incorporate it into Smackdown last night. Didn't happen.

WWE's shows featured wrestlers playing to a non-existent crowd and the same WWE style promos being cut to empty seats. Everyone spoke, acted, and wrestled the same exact way.

Pretty much just confirmed that the fans are irrelevant in terms of how WWE shows operate. Everything is formulaic.

It feels like watching a dress rehersal to a stage play.

Except that analogy is strained by the fact that wrestling is unique in feeding into/off of reactions of the crowd. Without the crowd...

It's more like watching someone telling a knock knock joke to a mirror.

Seems Japan might be going into another lockdown for wrestling very soon.

Despite the Japanese government allowing live events to resume with caution, the governor of Tokyo is still shutting down all events for this weekend in the area and at least one notable venue is only allowing shows with no crowds to be held.

Japan went back into a somewhat lockdown mode for wrestling again.

The governors of Tokyo and Kanagawa prefectures issued lockdown notices for events despite the Japanese government recently easing the restrictions.

All Japan Pro Wrestling announced yesterday that Joel Redman, Lucas Steele and Davey Boy Smith Jr will not be competing in this year's Champion Carnival due to travel issues relating to COVID-19. This year's Champion Carnival is scheduled for April.

Noah went further in their announcements. They also announced that they will be cancelling all their scheduled their events from the end of March and April to May.
