Wrestling is no exception with promotions big and small forced to make changes to their schedule, including canceling or postponing events.
Jerry “The King” Lawler sat down with Kevin Cerrito of Cerrito Live last week to discuss how the coronavirus will impact the WWE and Wrestlemania 37.
“I know I said I do not think they will ever have an empty arena Wrestlemania,” Lawler said, “and I did say I didn’t think it would be canceled, and as of yet as of this moment it’s still not canceled.
They’re going to wait until the very last moment to make that decision. Whatever I said last week I guess is still right up to this moment.”
Lawler’s life hasn’t been affected by the virus, mentioning how a show he did in Bradley, Tennessee was packed with fans and his local donut shop was busy as usual the next morning.
“I just think that the media is blowing this thing, is creating this panic,” Lawler said. “You know you can’t find toilet paper anywhere.
That’s the main thing the coronavirus causes you is to make you go to the bathroom a million times a day or something. Other than that, I still think I still feel like this is blown out of proportion and it’s a media created panic.”
Lawler said the businesses shutting down operations, including the NCAA and Disney theme parks, are doing so in reaction to the panic being created by the media.
He said he will be on RAW on Monday night and his travel plans are not affected, scoffing at the CDC recommendation against flying and saying a member of the CDC task force is “a weasley looking little guy.”
Lawler said there is no cure for the virus even if one gets it, so he’s going to keep living his life. He ends by laughing when Cerrito says he’s concerned with Lawler flying.
