How WWE is planning to get around the new Travel Ban which is in place

Jun 28, 2020 - by Steve Gerweck

Governors Andrew Cuomo of New York, Phil Murphy of New Jersey and Ned Lamont of Connecticut issued an order that everyone who leaves the state for a number of different states where the outbreaks are high right now, in particular Florida, must quarantine for two weeks before they can return to society.

Both WWE and AEW taping in Florida, this affects some AEW talent, notably MJF, who lives in Long Island. Most of the WWE Executives live in CT.

The plan going forward for WWE was for the people who live in those states to fly out of Philadelphia to Orlando, and back to Philadelphia, and drive from there back to Connecticut or New York for those who live there.

Even though that is very much a violation of what the governors want and can be punishable by a $1,000 fine in New York the potential fines are $2,000 for a first offense and $10,000 there after. They are not blockading the border of New Jersey driving in so there is a large Philadelphia loophole.
