• Florida Governor Explains Why WWE Is An Essential Business, Donald Trump Gives A Shout Out To Vince McMahon
At today’s press conference, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis explained why WWE was deemed as essential business.
Below is what DeSantis said:
“Disney asked for some of the gardening people to go because they have millions of dollars worth of stuff there and it’s just gonna go bad. I said, ‘is there gonna be social distancing?’ They said, ‘yeah they’re just gonna go out there and work themselves.
Obviously WWE, there’s no crowd and it’s just a very, very small group of people. We just look at it at a case by case basis. We haven’t had a lot of requests. I think a lot of this will be ‘What do we look like in May with some of this rather than ‘can we do stuff?’
The one thing I support is, I think that we do need to support content especially sports and events. Not saying they’ll have a crowd there, but if NASCAR can have a race and televise it without having a large crowd I think that’s a good thing.”
During today’s coronavirus briefing at the White House, US President Donald Trump gave a shout out to WWE CEO Vince McMahon.
Below is what Trump said:
“In sports, we want to get our sports back, so important. These will be some separate calls, some will be together, by the way, and some will be separate. But we have to get our sports back. I’m tired of watching baseball games that are 14 years old, but I haven’t actually had too much time to watch. I would say maybe I watch one batter and then I get back to work.
The NBA – Adam Silver, the Major League Baseball – we miss our baseball players and this is baseball season right here. Rob Manfred, thank you very much. NFL – Roger Goodell, thank you Roger. UFC – Dana White, great Dana White. PGA – Jay Monahan, LPGA – Michael Whan, USDA – Patrick Galbraith, Major League Soccer – Don Garber, WWE – the great Vince McMahon, NASCAR – Lesa Kennedy, thank you Lisa. NHL – Gary Bettman. From the New England Patriots – Bob Kraft, from the Dallas Cowboys – Jerry Jones, Dallas Mavericks – Mark Cuban.”
