WWE hasn’t been able to tour with their roster since March when they were forced to remain at The Performance Center and pre-record several episodes of their shows at a time.

In the months that have followed, WWE has released many of the stars responsible for their live events which means that the company would need to restructure their shows when they are able to bounce back from COVID. According to The Wrestling Observer, many stars have already been told that live events won’t be the same in the post COVID era.

“There is talent in WWE that has been told in recent contract negotiations that the old way of touring is not coming back, even if and when the country bounces back from COVID.”
