Tampa Bay city officials did not take a permanent decision when it comes to WrestleMania, with the commissioner saying that since the show is a few weeks way, they don’t want to make that decision now. The meeting was held today at 1:30PM ET and was streamed live on Facebook.
WWE officials, who are also currently in Tampa, had a meeting today as well to see what could be the way forward since the coronavirus looks like it’s getting worse every day. The Commissioner added that if WWE doesn’t take the decision themselves, they would reconvene the panel to make the decision for them in a week or so.
WWE has made no public announcement yet on what the outcome of their meeting was and what is the contingency plan if Tampa Bay city officials pull the plug on the show.
#UPDATE ON #WRESTLEMANIA: As of now, #Wrestlemania36 remains on, although @HillsboroughFL says the event's future could be determined within the week (see clip). @GovRonDeSantis says it's up to Tampa & @WWE to figure out. Updates coming here, plus from @WFLADaisy & @WFLA. (1/2) pic.twitter.com/9obbXJKS04
