The show won’t go on? The wrestling world came to a halt on Thursday as Bray Wyatt shockingly passed away at 36 years old. Wyatt reportedly suffered a heart attack after contracting the coronavirus earlier this year, exacerbating a heart condition. At the same time though, WWE is coming up on a regular television event and now things might have to change.

According to Better Wrestling Experience by way of, WWE is said to be “on pause right now” and “everything is scrapped”. There is no word on what that might mean for this week’s SmackDown, which is still currently scheduled to take place.

Opinion: At the end of the day, WWE is still set to run a television show, but I’m not sure how well things are going to go so soon after such an issue. Maybe the show will still take place, though you can almost guarantee a lot of the show is going to be dedicated to Wyatt, as it should be. At the same time though, it wouldn’t surprise me if the whole show was spent on him, which might not be the worst idea.

What do you expect from the show? What should it be? Let us know in the comments below.
