Kane defends WWE’s decision to continue TV events during coronavirus outbreak



Former WWE Champion Kane, real name Glenn Jacobs who is Mayor of Knox County, recently did an interview with FOX News to talk about certain states being on lockdown due to the coronavirus outbreak.

During the interview, Kane went to the defense of WWE over its decision to continue to hold TV events during this time. While the idea of sports making a return soon has been talked about, WWE never shut down TV tapings.

They’ve been holding them from the closed-set WWE Performance Center in Orlando since the pandemic began back in March.

Kane is behind the company because he thinks WWE offering people entertainment during this time is a good thing. It should be noted that WWE’s TV ratings have dropped in a significant way since the start of the outbreak.

"I think it's the right decision because right now there's just not that much available in the realm of live entertainment. I think that it gives people a distraction and something else to think about and I think that's important. I think WWE handled that in a responsible way.

It was added that Kane stated that not having fans in attendance takes away an important part of the show for the performers.
