I bet it was Roman Reigns and he's gonna come back from this at Summerslam and beat Brock Lesnar in his new "Dr. Conrad Virus the 13th" gimmick with five superman punches and six spears.

Tell me Vince wouldn't do this.

Roman will be jobbing to Shorty G when he returns.

The rumour is that it's Charly that has it.

I shouldn't make jokes. This shit isn't funny. Making the talent work during a pandemic is irresponsible and disgusting.

I say this all the time but I really, really dislike Vince and WWE upper management right now.

I was betting it was Sam Roberts and he was Patient Zero since he looks like he has had it for a decade.

WWE deemed Essential Business by the governor of Florida. That should cost him the election. Just play clips from the Cena-Bray shit in campaign ads.

I feel sorry for everyone that has to go to work under Vince right now. Breaks my heart.

Then don't look at Daniel Bryan's twitter feed. Poor bastard is missing his anniversary with his pregnant wife to fucking wrestle Cesaro.

I hope Vince gets corona and dies. I read Bryan's twitter feed. This might be one of, if not the, shadiest things a wrestling promoter has ever done. I mean Colon being complicit in Brody's murder was nasty but this might even trump that.

Vince McMahon's conference call with WWE employees is currently ongoing:

*McMahon just announced cutbacks and furloughs for WWE staff and the company overall, stating that these were hard decisions that reflect the current reality.

*McMahon stated the company would be cutting back on pay for Board Members and Executives.

*Plans to move WWE Headquarters out of Titan Tower to the new HQ in Stamford, CT have been delayed.

*McMahon also stated they would be cutting the talent roster and overall head count of employees. Some will go on furlough. Others will be let go from their responsibilities. Employees will receive texts about where they stand going forward.

The meeting lasted less than five minutes.

We can pretty much expect some WWE talent releases to be announced.

If AEW can afford them that could be good. I'm sure Good Brothers and Lio will definitely be there. EC3 has heat with MJF so he might not be hired.

Yes on the plus side at least they've got other places to go
- AEW, ROH, MLW, Impact, NWA, New Japan. It really sucks when you see a guy like Drake and how broke up he is about this & understandably so. If they let JB go he should be an instant hire for AEW too especially with Matt there and if they can get Drake in and EC3 and MJF can squash the beef that would be a fun faction.
