WWE has responded to the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak and protected their wrestlers by instituting a “No Touching” policy at meet and greets starting this weekend. The Undertaker and Braun Strowman appeared at The Big Event convention in NYC and neither engaged in the usual fan interaction. Braun would do fist bumps, but they were otherwise unable to shake fans’ hands or get in close for photos.
Sasha Banks also had a signing over the weekend and wore gloves for the event, sharing a photo on Twitter thanking everyone for not getting her sick.

With WrestleMania less than a month away, it seems likely that this policy will continue into WrestleMania Axxess and other Mania Week activities sponsored by WWE, and fans should be aware of that heading into the event.
