It might be a long time. There are so many changes going on all over the place due to the Coronavirus that it isn’t clear how things are going to go in the near or far future. People can’t go from one country to another at the moment and that can mess with a lot of people in a lot of ways. Wrestling isn’t immune from the situation, and one major change seems to be in place for the time being.
You might have noticed a lack of Canadian wrestlers around WWE and various other wrestling promotions at the moment. That comes from a travel ban, barring people from going to Canada to the United States and vice versa. Such an issue can cause a lot of problems for WWE, and it turns out that the problems might be continuing for a long time to come.
According to CTV News, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has announced that the travel ban between Canada and the United States has been extended another month. This extension means the travel ban will continue until at least June 21. After that date, essential travel may be allowed, though it is not clear when all travel will be approved. Currently, the Singh Brothers and Robert Roode, among others, are not allowed to leave Canada and return to wrestling in the United States.
There have been some great Canadian wrestlers. Check out some of the better ones:
Opinion: This is something that can mess with a lot of people and that’s going to be a problem for a good while to come. I’m not sure when WWE will be back to full strength and that isn’t anyone’s fault. It is beyond anyone’s control and WWE has more than enough talent to make things work in the meantime. I’m sure they’ll be glad to get things back to normal, but it’s going to take some time to get there.
