WWE Hall of Famer says there's "no need to worry" amidst WrestleMania cancellation fears
- The WWE legend said that hosting the event in an empty arena "can be done".
Amidst the global coronavirus outbreak, there have been concerns that several large scale events may be cancelled or happen in empty arenas, with several sporting events already being postponed or played behind closed doors.
Obviously, with the largest wrestling spectacle, WrestleMania, imminent, those fears have resulted in speculation that WWE may be forced to make changes to the event.
Well, two days after WWE released a statement to ESPN stating that they "remain committed to hosting WrestleMania" and reiterating that "there are currently no plans to cancel or postpone upcoming events." WWE Hall of Famer Jerry "The King" Lawler has responded to a tweet to confirm that there's "no need to worry" about WrestleMania being behind closed doors.
A fan had tagged Jerry Lawler in a video of his iconic Empty Arena Match with Terry Funk, commenting on the speculation of sporting events being held behind closed doors, and The King responded to say there was no need to worry - but confirming that it can be done!
Below is the WWE statement in full regarding WrestleMania:
The health and safety of our fans, performers and employees are our top priorities and we are monitoring the situation closely with our partners and government officials in Tampa Bay.
