It’s the next logical step. The spread of the Coronavirus has changed the way wrestling (and everything else) works in the world. It has certainly impacted wrestling, causing the rise of taped shows among top level wrestling promotions and no fans at WrestleMania 36. Those are the kind of changes that you do not see every day but they might be extending into the future.
While WrestleMania is coming up very soon, there are a lot more WWE shows to consider in the near future. With so many things for WWE to do at the moment, they still have a lot to think about as they go forward. That does not make things easier right now, but it is something that has to be done. One of the things is preparing for future shows, and that could mean changing venues again.
According to the WrestleVotes Twitter account, WWE is likely going to be changed to a new venue as well. The show, currently scheduled for May 9 in Baltimore, Maryland, is facing issues with the efforts to fight the Coronavirus and as a result, the show may have to move elsewhere. However, it is not clear when or where that show may take place, as WWE may not be able to use the Performance Center in Orlando, Florida if the Governor’s recent shelter at home order is extended.
Source states the Money In The Bank PPV event scheduled for 5/9 in Baltimore will not happen as planned. TBD, as is everything else right now, as to when / where this PPV will take place.

The show can do a lot of good things. Check out how the full on Money in the Bank event goes:
Opinion: You had to know that this was coming and it was more of a question of when it would happen rather than when it would happen. WWE is going to be very different for a long time to come and there is no changing any of that at the moment. Hopefully things get a lot better eventually, but until there are no fans to watch the show, it is going to be a very different wrestling world.
