Seth Rollins on WWE Holding TV Tapings During Coronavirus Pandemic

Seth Rollins on WWE Holding TV Tapings During Coronavirus Pandemic
Seth Rollins was recently interviewed by Sports Illustrated where he spoke about a wide range of topics.

During the interview, he was asked about whether he thinks WWE should still be running shows during the coronavirus pandemic. Last week, WWE made the call to tape a few episodes of Raw, NXT, and SmackDown in addition to both nights of WrestleMania 36.

These TV tapings will get WWE through the April 6th episode of Monday Night Raw. After that, the company doesn’t have new content for their weekly TV shows.

Some states have a stay at home order including Florida, which is where WWE has been taping shows at the Performance Center in Orlando. The stay at home order in Orlando runs through April 9th, which is the Thursday before Friday Night SmackDown.

“I don’t know. I’m not a medical expert. Obviously the airports are still open. Should they close? I don’t know. I wish I had answers. I’m sure a lot of people do.”

The Monday Night Messiah continued by noting that he’s trying to stay as hygienic as possible, keep my distance from as many people as he can. For now, he feels great as he’s been able to avoid the virus. However, he understands a lot of families and people who have been affected by it.

“I wish I had more answers. I wish I knew what was the right thing to do. After WrestleMania, we’re gonna recollect and see where we’re gonna go from here. Right now, I’m very humble and grateful that I have a job that still needs me.”

Rollins added that a lot of Americans are not in that boat and their futures are uncertain. Thus, if providing them with some entertainment can help them out, then he feels that the company is being productive in doing something right.
