Capitol Report: Is the WWE an essential business?

Capitol Report

Conn. (WTNH) — Is professional wrestling an essential business? Florida Governor Ron Desantis thinks so.

Last week, Desantis gave WWE the OK to start up live productions from their Orlando studio, but without a live audience involved.

The governor defended the move saying, “I think people have been starved for content…if people are told to stay closer to the house, it sure does help to have some fresh things.”
