That’s a nice thing to see. It is hard to look anywhere without seeing some sort of a story related to the Coronavirus. The story has spread into almost every aspect of everyone’s daily life and that is likely to be the case for a long time to come. One of the major elements of the story has seen individuals and groups praising medical workers and now that is the case with wrestling companies.
There are all kinds of things that are being done to help fight against and slow down the spread of the Coronavirus. One of the biggest things standing against the virus are medical workers who are putting their own health at risk to help those in need. That is the kind of work that has earned and deserves attention. The wrestling world is getting involved in that, plus in their own part in the battle against the virus.
WWE, AEW and Impact Wrestling have all put out videos related to the Coronavirus. AEW and Impact Wrestling have both sent out videos thanking medical workers for doing their part in helping care for the sick, while WWE has partnered with the ad council for a video talking about what can be done to slow the spread of the virus. All three companies are still running television shows, with WWE being the only one still running live events.
These are some great videos. Check out how the companies responded:
Opinion: This might be something small but it’s not like it is hard to do and if some good can come from them then so be it. Maybe someone will get something out of this and that’s always a positive. I’m not exactly sold on the idea that wrestling is essential at the moment, but at least it is something to take your mind off of things, even if it is just in a small way.
