You might be getting used to this. The Coronavirus has been shaking up the entire world, in addition to the wrestling world. I’m not sure what this is going to mean going forward for the major shows that are coming up, but things have already started changing in a hurry. With so much stuff going on at once, it can be interesting to see what is changing. Now we know one of the next major changes.
One of the major changes that has taken place involves the locations where wrestling shows can take place. Several locations are not allowing mass gatherings over a certain number of people, which has limited the amount of places that can hold events. As a result, WWE does not have the best set of options for their weekly television shows, but now they have figured something out, at least for the time being.
WWE has confirmed that next week’s Monday Night Raw will take place at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida. This is the third consecutive show to take place at the Performance Center, after this week’s NXT and SmackDown, though unlike NXT, there will be no fans in attendance. At the moment, there is no word on how many shows will take place at the Performance Center.

The Performance Center is a cool venue. Check out what happens when it hosts a show:
Opinion: I know this is a weird thing and the shows are not going to be anything resembling the normal versions, but it’s as good as we can get at the moment. There is a good chance that we are going to be seeing WWE at the Performance Center for a long time to come, but that’s a lot better than having nothing going on. It’s basically WWE down at its bare bones and I’ll take what I can get at this point.
