The Coronavirus had forced WWE to alter their schedule on multiple occasions, including moving their biggest show of the year, WrestleMania 36, out of Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. WWE has yet to officially announce the cancellation of their upcoming supershow at Madison Square Garden, but there's literally no way it can happen with New York being on lockdown.
