They're just following suit with what everyone else is doing. A lot of companies are opening up their archives to people as a show of goodwill and empathy during the quarantine. I give these people no respect or credit for anything these days.

I don't see Netflix doing this though.
That's because they are thriving right now with everyone being at home. Subscriptions have probably tripled. WWE can't say the same. I'm talking about businesses that can't market their services/products at the same level, such as the Digital Marketer brand or the NBA who is also giving free access to their full game archives.

Fair enough. I still think WWE is ridiculous holding WrestleMania though, but others seem to feel different. I mean countries are pulling out of the Olympics, but WWE still forcing their big show lol.

I agree, I think its for storyline issues mostly. If they postpone it till Summer, they'd have to extend these storylines another 3-5 months, and that's assuming that things die down.

If this were back in the 1980's I could see the argument about the storylines being pushed back a year or two because in those days they use to stretch things out a year or two. In 2020 though? They can burn through these angles in 2 weeks if need be with all the programming slots they have AND their own Network.

I would think this issue is the least of their problems for why they are not postponing especially now they could just do angles in empty arenas and force their vision on fans sitting at home without backlash in arenas.

True, that's probably part of why they are doing it now too, or why Vince is doing it now. He knows that he can force his vision and get Roman to win the title in the main event without a chorus of boos, something he has been trying to do for 5 years. That vision matters to him more than any other storyline. Who knows, Charlotte might even win now.

The more Braun speaks the less I like him. He's very brash and loud and obnoxious. His personality rubs me the wrong. That and he's a far right conservative republican with a big mouth, patriotic, nationalistic, self centered, kills animals for fun brags about being a "meat castle". He's like the annoying jock in school. And to be honest I'm not one to dislike someone over political opinions but he just talks too much shit.

This will be useful for me during this period. Thank you Vince! Always thinking of the fans even if most of us don't appreciate it.
