Despite all of the craziness of the current coronavirus crisis and its multitude of implications for all of us, there continues to be plenty to write about in the pro wrestling world because, as fluid as everything about this “new normal” has been, there seems to be no shortage of news and views pertaining to the pro mat game as internet sources and traditional media continue to keep us updated on everything and WWE and AEW once again provided several hours of television programming in their regular time slots this past week.

Admittedly, given the significance of everything swirling around us at this point in time, pro wrestling news barely reaches the trivial level in the grand scheme of things. As expected, WrestleMania 36 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa finally became a victim of COVID-19 after speculation about what seemed inevitable had extended past the point where other major events had already been postponed or canceled. WWE reportedly may have been waiting for the city or state to pull the plug on Mania for insurance reasons, but despite not being able to do a normal Mania stadium show in front of 60 to 70,000 fans, they announced plans to do Mania over two days on the first weekend of April from the Performance Center and other locations with no fans and only limited essential personnel on hand.
