Becky Lynch reveals WWE backstage reaction to coronavirus outbreak
- Coronavirus has already caused WWE to move SmackDown to the Performance Center.
WWE has moved this week’s episode of SmackDown to the Performance Center in Orlando, Florida, while it has been confirmed that contingency plans are in place for WrestleMania 36 if the event cannot be held at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida on April 5.
Asked by TV Insider’s Scott Fishman about the current atmosphere backstage in WWE over the virus, Lynch said Superstars are using hand sanitizer but insisted “you can’t freak out about any of this stuff”.
"It’s business as usual. I think we’re constantly meeting different people. We’re constantly shaking hands. We know to use hand sanitizer. We’re always exposed to so many different bacteria in our lives and so many different countries. You can’t freak out about any of this stuff. You have to continue on and hope for the best."
