Maybe not? The Coronavirus has changed the way all kinds of things work in the world and wrestling has certainly not been left out. It is the kind of thing that you cannot see coming and all wrestling companies, including WWE are still trying to figure out the way around the whole situation. There have been a variety of changes made, but one of the bigger changes might still be there when the pandemic is over.

Live events are one of the more important things that WWE has to offer. While they might not be the strongest financial resource for the company, they are a good way to drum up interest in the product as well as getting wrestlers in the ring for some practice and selling merchandise. That has been the case for a long time, but then the pandemic changed everything and it might not be changed back.

According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, wrestlers have been told that the old system of live events will not be returning even when the Coronavirus pandemic is over. WWE has also been recording record profits, including increased merchandise sales, without running live events. The lack of live events has also led to fewer injuries as the wrestlers are spending less time in the ring. This comes days after several WWE employees who work with live events were released from the company.

Live events are a fun way to go. Check out what you might see at one:

Opinion: I’m not sure what to think of this as I just can’t imagine a fully functional WWE without live events. I know they must be happy to have the higher profits, but at the same time it might not be the easiest thing in the world for some of the wrestlers. Maybe WWE will run fewer live events or something like that, but either way it is going to be quite the change for everyone.
