A lot of people have criticized WWE’s decision to move forward with WrestleMania despite the coronavirus outbreak and now CM Punk has joined the list.
The former WWE Champion recently had an interview with The No-Sports Report where he talked about the event and said that Vince McMahon is being stubborn with the whole situation:
“Vince [is] being stubborn,” Punk said. “What do I know? I know that WWE brace gets hell bent out of shape when I talk about it but I think there should be some sort of a discourse, there needs to be a conversation about it. If you look at what’s happening with Major League Baseball and it is, they talk about, they talk about pushing opening day.”
Punk went on to explain that it does not make sense to hold the show without an audience from a business standpoint either and claimed that it’s completely strange:
“I think it’s completely strange,” Punk said. “I hear all the rumors of who’s sick and you got all these guys, whether the culture has changed there or not, that are going to be job scared so then they’re going to show up and get somebody else sick and that’s how the virus works. Instead of being a leader and taking charge and being like, ‘Hey, you know what let’s reschedule this, let’s refund everybody their money.’
