• BREAKING: Anonymous WWE Employee Asks Florida Government To Shut Down TV Tapings, Claims WWE Is Forcing Employees To Work
Orange County officials tried to shut down WWE TV Tapings at the Performance Center, until the company was deemed an essential business by the governor of the state last week.
On Tuesday morning, Orange County Board of Commissioners held a meeting, where they listened to public comments. During the meeting, a WWE employee, who wished their name to be kept anonymous, submitted a comment by the name of “John”.
The alleged employee claimed that the employees are being forced to work. He further said that although WWE is taking full sanitary precautions, the wrestlers obviously have to get into contact with each other.
The employee didn’t state their name, as they fear being fired by the company.
