The wrestling world has been hit hard over the past few months since the COVID-19 pandemic has meant that fans are no longer allowed to attend events and both WWE and AEW have been forced to implement new health and safety measures for all of their employees.
Despite the global pandemic which has gripped the world since the turn of the year, WWE and AEW have been able to move their entire rosters to Florida and continue to operate their shows on a regular basis.
Both companies were also able to deliver on their biggest show of the year, even though WWE was forced to move from the Raymond James Stadium to the Performance Center and decided to screen their show over two nights.
AEW also went ahead with Double or Nothing, which is seen as the company’s version of WrestleMania and as part of a recent conference call where he looked to hype up this weekend’s Double or Nothing event, Tony Khan made it clear that the competition was still there when he stated that he believed that Double or Nothing “kicked the crap out of WrestleMania.”
WWE and AEW’s Wednesday night wars have continued over the past few months and the most recent news on this situation is that WWE could decide to move NXT to Tuesday nights moving forward in order to help with the ratings.
