They should, its not worth risking their wrestlers lives for scripted entertainment. The Tokyo Olympics is shut till next year, you think WWE is bigger than that? Rey Mystertio and Dana Brooks are already in isolation. WWE should suspend everything this year and should return with Royal Rumble 2021. They should just do reruns of old shows on tv.
I agree but like I said in previous posts maybe have the wrestler's do some promo;s from home facetime/skype to hear how they are doing ect

They should play old Attitude Era episodes when they actually had stars and watch it get better ratings than Raw/Smackdown over the last few years

Comparing taping several weeks of wrestling in a closed arena to the Olympics is disingenuous. The Olympics has people coming from all over the world to compete as well as fans whereas the WWE taped closed arena shows consists of wrestlers and crew that mostly live full time in the Orlando/Tampa area where they are filming.

They just need to finish the story lines or feud that has been going on until WM36. After that, they just need to air their old contents and who knows with great advertising and promotion they can bring back the AE episodes abd might spike the ratings.

Full AE episodes would be lucky to do 200-250k viewers on TV.

Even on network old raw episodes have rarely if ever been in top list of most watched things whereas new NXT episodes usually at or top 3 weekly.

I am sure if USA network aired SNMEs from the 80s even Andre vs Hogan one they don't do well either.

The problem with showing WWE at its peak is that the current stuff will seem even more stupid and phony when it returns.

But what else can they do. Here in the UK the estimate is we'll be in lockdown until the summer; the USA has just overtaken Italy and will have more reported cases than China by Monday. WWE are taped up to pst WrestleMania.
