WWE issued the following statement to Wrestlezone, denying this morning’s allegations about the treatment of talent at their television tapings.

“These accusations aren’t true. Employees know they can confidentially go to Human Resources, not the public. Notwithstanding the appropriate protocol, no one would be fired if they were uncomfortable with their surroundings. We’ve made accommodations for individuals upon request.”

Spectrum News 13’s Stephanie Coueignoux also says she followed up again after receiving the same statement on the company’s practice of social distancing. According to her, WWE representative replied by saying they were taking the right precautions outside of its performances, and adjusted their production schedule to accommodate as well.

Earlier today, Jon Alba of Spectrum Sports reported an anonymous WWE employee going by “John” submitted remarks to be read at this morning’s Orange County Board of County Commissioners meeting, claiming they were being “forced to work” during a pandemic. In addition, it was noted by the complaint that they felt afraid to speak out due to fear of termination, and instead asked the Florida government to shut down the television tapings so that WWE employees may properly follow social distancing guidelines.

Last week, WWE was re-classified as an “essential business” by Florida Governor Rick DeSantis. WWE had been told to shut down their tapings by the Orange County Sheriff’s Office multiple times before the ordinance was amended, but were allowed to continue after they were deemed essential on April 9.
