Florida deems professional wrestling ‘essential’

Recommended Posts

Speaking of people's faces on that poster - that promo pic they are using of Drew with the belt (using it on match graphics too) winds me up.

Couple of years of being a stone cold killer (Scottish Psychopath/Scottish Terminator, depending on what took their fancy at the time), turns face & wins the belt and is suddenly a grinning goon.

I mean sure, he's happy to have won the belt. And I'd certainly lean more towards Terminator than Psychopath for a babyface nickname, but not every babyface needs to smile all the time!!

Every WWE babyface of the past 20 years, of course he was going to turn into a goofball as soon as he turned face.

Reasons Why People Look Down On Wrestling #224 (according to WON)

Quote

WWE had planned to start taping with crowds in Florida. They have contacted a company for local people for a Friday and a Monday in late July (7/24 and 7/27 were the dates being bandied about) for live television shoots at the RP Funding Center in Lakeland, FL, an 8,000 seat arena. The plans was to allow fans but to have social distancing, so limiting crowds to a percentage of capacity. Last word is that may be pushed to August, but the July dates were originally set to be announced this coming week because Vince McMahon was determined to be the first person to run a live indoor sports event with a crowd.

No doubt they'll sell commemorative merch at the shows too, knowing them.

Think Florida is up to nearly 10,000 new cases a day now. While the Mayor seems very hesitant to roll back certain measures, he'd have to be a complete fucking moron to open anything up further. So it'll probably happen.

They really see these fake fights they put on as one giant make-a-wish to humanity, don't they.

They'll probably stick Steph in front of a camera and have her compare the thousands who have died battling Covid to Vince's battle over the steroid trial again, like she did on the SD! a few days after 9/11.

Florida resident here- WWN put on two local shows (crowd capped at 55 and they did require masks) but the one this week was cancelled as the cases spike.

FL looks like we’ll be struggling with this for a long time.

Some of the theme parks are selling social distancing merch and 'welcome back' tshirts etc.

Of course he pissing was. Actually, as I recall that was literally part of his post-9/11 promo.

Think the post 9/11 Smackdown was the first 'mass gathering' since the attacks. Remember Prichard saying on STW podcast that they were trying to get President Bush to appear on it. Even he wasn't that stupid though.
