US And Canada Cross-Border Travel Restrictions Extended Until June 21

SmackDown will be less glorious for a little while longer...

The US-Canada border has been closed for non-essential travel since March 21 because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. This has prevented WWE Superstars like Robert Roode and The Singh Brothers from travelling to the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida for TV tapings, and AEW has been without one of its top tag teams in Evil Uno and Stu Grayson of The Dark Order for the past couple of months. 

The cross-border travel restrictions were set to expire yesterday but the Canadian and American Governments agreed to extend the existing agreement until June 21, meaning wrestlers living in Canada will be unable to attend TV tapings for at least another month. 

When the restrictions will be lifted remains to be seen, and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau cautioned that non-essential travel could remain banned for a number on months. He did say that they were looking at the situation on a week-to-week basis with the United States, however.

Trudeau said: "The decisions that we're taking are very much made week-to-week in this crisis. The situation is changing rapidly and we're adjusting constantly to what are the right measures for Canadians to get that balance right between keeping people safe, and restoring a semblance of normality and economic activity that we all rely on."
