WWE RAW will be live from the WWE Performance Center tonight and they aren’t skirting any legal restrictions to do so.
Orange County mayor Jerry Demings explained the situation today. “Originally, they were not deemed an essential business,” Demings said. “With some conversation with the governor’s office regarding the governor’s order, they were deemed an essential business.” You can watch Demings’ full comments on the matter in the video at the top of the page.
