Report: Atmosphere Backstage In WWE Is "Closer To Business As Usual"

After WWE was designated as an essential business...

On April 9, the Florida Governor's office added "professional sports and media production" to the list of essential services in The Sunshine State. This has allowed WWE to continue taping episodes of Monday Night Raw and Friday Night SmackDown from the Performance Center in Orlando, Florida and the company will use a mixture of live and taped programming until July. 

With people involved at the tapings now being designated as essential workers, Mike Johnson reported on PWInsider Elite Audio that the atmosphere backstage at shows is returning to normal and is "closer to business as usual." 

Johnson said: "We are told that while everyone is wearing masks... it's closer to business as usual than it had been in recent weeks because they are all considered essential employees and they're doing what they're doing."

WWE programming will also continue as normal tonight with NXT. Five matches are scheduled for the episode as the tournament to crown an Interim Cruiserweight Champion continues. Recently released Superstar Drake Maverick will face Jake Atlas, El Hijo del Fantasma will debut against Jack Gallagher, and Kushida will take on Tony Nese. The Prince Finn Balor will also go one on one with The Velveteen Dream in the main event.
