WWE will wrap their loaded week of TV tapings from the Orlando, Florida area this week just as a new two-week "stay at home" mandate is going into effect in Orange County, which includes Orlando and Winter Park, Florida, where the WWE Performance Center and Full Sail University are located.
Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer, Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings, and Sheriff John Mina announced today that the county will be under the "stay at home" order for two weeks, beginning this Thursday at 11pm ET.
WWE is set to wrap their tapings on Thursday with Night Two of WrestleMania 36. They taped WWE SmackDown and WWE 205 Live episodes last Friday, WWE NXT episodes on Sunday, and then WWE RAW on Monday and today. They are reportedly taping WrestleMania 36 Night One on Wednesday, and then the second night of The Grandest Stage of Them All on Thursday.
Mayor Demings confirmed that there are at least 50 cases of coronavirus in the county as of this afternoon.
"Orange County now has at least 50 cases within our county," said Demings. "On March 15, just one week ago we had just one case. It is an understatement that it is spreading throughout our community."
All of Orange County is being asked to stay at home as much as possible, except for essential business.
"We believe this is the most effective way to deal with the coronavirus threat," said Demings at the press conference. "Our goal is to get our lives back to normal as soon as possible."
Florida officials have called on Governor DeSantis to institute a similar lockdown statewide. There is concern across the country that travelers from New York will spread the COVID-19 virus to other states as they try to get away from New York during the outbreak, and DeSantis has pushed for restrictions on travelers from New York, noting their desire to escape a statewide lockdown in NY will likely bring hundreds of people with the virus to Florida. DeSantis said there are over 190 direct flights from the New York City area to the state of Florida, and he believes that every single flight has someone infected on it.
As noted earlier today at this link, at least two WWE Superstars are in quarantine over coronavirus concerns. Rey Mysterio and Dana Brooke were both pulled from the WrestleMania 36 card due to the concern. It was noted that Brooke is sick, and WWE didn't want to take any risk with either talent.
Stay tuned for updates from this week's WWE TV tapings as we go into WrestleMania 36 Week.

Soooo, are they’re going to be extensive spoilers in the thread titles here in a few days?
It would have to an inside job in order for spoilers to be leaked. Do you think anyone would risk it? There's no real benefit to leaking spoilers, outside of maybe some Meltzer brownie points.

Orange County FL (Orlando) under lockdown starting Thursday (3/26) night.



I think WWE will have most of Mania taped by this time. But this will certainly impact further tapings at the Performance Center.

Curious on what WWE's next move.
Its a good question. For Raw / Smackdown etc I guess they have enough canned footage from past ppvs they could air for weeks.

I don't see much way forward for new footage until the lockdown lifts. Even if they found a place to film they would still have the issue of getting people there. They could do remote interviews, but that only goes so far..

I'm sure Vince will try to get some exemption that will all him to continue to film at the PC. If he can get one or not may be another matter..

True, I’m just having flashbacks to that Dolphins1955, or whatever the name was, thing

Watch Vince push for RAW and SD filmed on the roof of titan towers like the old RAW intro.
Monster trucks on the roof match like WCW. 😂

Vince will probably air shows from Saudi Arabia

They likely have enough in the can (if all has gone to plan) to cover until the smackdown on the 10th. If the lockdown is lifted the can likely run smackdown that night and maybe do a set of tapings to tie them through another few weeks.

Either way I could see them finding a spot to keep filming as they have done unless the whole of the states is on lockdown. Then they are stuck on re-runs and content, interviews they can edit from home. There will be all types of contingency plans. It will hurt them but it will hurt everyone. AEW and everyone else will be in the same boat.

Good thing they filmed a couple weeks in advance. AEW unfortunately wanted to continue going live and they are paying for it now. Not many people were able to make the flight to Jax since not everybody on the roster lives there like NXT. They absolutely made the right move.

Surely that's the ticket they need to axe this abortion of a Wrestlemania and get their precious insurance money?
