• WWF Veteran Calls For “Socialist” Coronavirus Lockdown To Be Lifted

The Coronavirus pandemic has stopped the entire world. Almost all of the states in the USA are shut down, and it doesn’t look like they’ll open any time soon.

Old School WWF Veteran & current AEW wrestler Dustin Rhodes isn’t a fan of the idea of a lockdown, and he called for it to be lifted, while calling it a “socialist” measure.

Below is what he wrote in his Facebook post (which was later deleted):

“The world needs to open back up and end this mass hysteria. We are not a socialist nation. We are not a democracy! We are a republic. If we go on any longer with this bullsh*t, our economy will be shot and that much harder to kick start. #EndTheShutdown

I mean, no doubt we have an epidemic on our hands, and have sustained losses which is sad, but we have to move on with our lives. Taking precautions is fine, but end the shutdown please. I CARE ABOUT HUMAN LIFE, GUYS. Jeeze, take precautions, don’t go out if you have a comprised immune system. Wear your masks and social distance. Still open up.”
