Orange County Sheriff Told WWE To Stop Tapings, Florida Governor Addresses WWE Continuing

Orange County Sheriff Told WWE To Stop Tapings, Florida Governor Addresses WWE Continuing
Reporter Jon Alba has new details on WWE’s rocky taping schedule and some police run-ins.



The Orange County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that it was called several times to the WWE’s Performance Center over the past few weeks. It repeatedly told the company it was not in compliance with the existing laws and that it had to shut down its tapings. However, it kept on going with their tapings.

The new Executive Order signed on April 9 changed the law, and WWE is now legal as an “essential business.” Police were called again yesterday regarding last night’s Monday Night RAW taping, but they allowed it to continue due to the change.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis had a press conference today about COVID-19 and discussed allowing WWE to continue to operate out of Orlando.

DeSantis stressed that there’s not an audience for WWE and so there is a very limited amount of people interacting with one another. He stressed that as long as crowds aren’t there, he is OK with sports going on as people need to look forward to something. “I think people are starved for content. We’ve never had a period like this in modern American history where there’s no content.”
