I don’t see this ending well. Despite the spread of the Coronavirus, WWE has continued to move forward with their usual television schedule. While the shows are nowhere near their usual versions, the tapings have continued and will continue to do so for the time being. However, things might not be as they seem and there could be a problem coming up in the near future.

Earlier this month, the state of Florida declared WWE an essential business in the state, allowing it to continue to run shows for the sake of the Florida economy. This allowed WWE to continue running as usual at the Performance Center, meaning there is little that can be done to prevent them from running shows. However, someone inside the company has something to say about it.

According to Spectrum Sports 360, an anonymous WWE employee, referring to himself as John, made a public complaint against WWE on Tuesday, saying that the company is not maintaining proper social distancing at its tapings and the employees are being forced to work. He is unable to speak out in public for fear of losing his job and requested that the Orange County Board of Commissioners shut down the tapings. The WrestleVotes Twitter account has said that a direct source has denied the allegations, saying that no one is being forced to work. WWE has also issued a response to PWInsider.com, denying the allegations.

It’s quite the allegation. Check out the complaint and WWE’s response below:

“These accusations aren’t true. Employees know they can confidentially go to Human Resources, not the public. Notwithstanding the appropriate protocol, no one would be fired if they were uncomfortable with their surroundings. We’ve made accommodations for individuals upon request.”

Opinion: I’m really not sure how much good this complaint is going to do. Assuming it is true, how fast can WWE fix things up to satisfy any potential inspection? On top of that, with more states opening up in the near future, WWE could probably head elsewhere if they were shut out of Florida and everything would continue to be fine. I’m not sure if this is going to change much in WWE, but if someone felt the need to say something about it, maybe there is something wrong at these shows.

Will this change anything for WWE? Are their shows in jeopardy? Let us know in the comments below.
