Raj Giri of WrestlingInc.com is reporting that furloughed WWE employees received information packets. It was explained that the furloughs were done because of the “current level of work available as a result of COVID-19” and the pandemic was referred to as “an unforeseen circumstance, akin to a natural disaster.” The current furlough end date is July 1st, 2020 although that could change “given the current situation and ongoing uncertainties.”
In regards to the released WWE stars having non-compete clauses, Fightful.com noted the following:
“Based on what we’ve heard, the WWE main roster got 90-day non-compete clauses, NXT got 30-day non competes.”
We here at PWNewsroom are hoping this pandemic goes away soon, because it’s unfortunate what it’s doing to our favorite industries. We’ll keep you posted as more information comes out on this subject.
