Stephanie McMahon spoke about that they needed to take an essential decision of whether to continue with their shows or not. After the mental turmoil, WWE came to a conclusion of carrying on with their shows, even during the COVID crisis.

 

She said, “We had to quickly pivot to decide — A) does the show still go on? and B) if so, where and how? We decided that yes we have responsibility to our audience, and to our partners, to continue to produce our programming.”


As mentioned earlier, WWE’s flagship pay-per-view, WrestleMania 36 went on for two nights at Performance Center. She praised how the show was held and said, “it was definitely a unique experience.”
