WWE's Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon recently spoke with The Tampa Bay Times and addressed the coronavirus threat that has left people all around the world in a state of worry.

First detected in Wuhan, China, the deadly virus has affected more than 84,000 people in over 50 countries to date. Speaking of the threat, Stephanie stated that WWE will do all it can to make sure that WrestleMania goes on without a hitch, but if things do go awry, the company will make sure to put the fans' health first.

“The health and safety of not only our fan base, but also our superstars, really does come first. We don’t want to put anyone in a bad situation ever, regardless of the circumstance. Those are not risks worth taking.”

WWE’s EVP of special events Jonathan Saboor also opened up on the same, stating that WWE continuously monitors global events given the number of live events the company churns out in a year.
