Triple H explains how coronavirus pandemic will change WWE forever after WrestleMania 36
Triple H believes the coronavirus crisis will affect the way WWE do business in the long run with changes that will ultimately improve the product. COVID-19, as the deadly virus is known, has taken a major toll around the world with 1,066,706 cases and 56,767 deaths confirmed globally.

The disease has also had a massive impact in professional wrestling as Vince McMahon’s promotion was forced to make some massive alterations for WrestleMania, the company’s biggest show of the year.
The wrestling giants were set to stage WrestleMania 36 at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida and refused to cancel or postpone the event.
However, McMahon was forced to move it to the Performance Center in Orlando where the company filmed the show last week behind closed doors and will air it this weekend as a two-part-episode.

Triple H believes the world will never be the same again after the coronavirus crisis is contained and is confident that this imminent change will also affect WWE’s product.
The Executive Vice President of Global Talent Strategy & Development believes that this year’s WrestleMania, which could go down in history as the most bizarre wrestling show ever, will change the promotion’s philosophy.

This year’s Mania will see several bouts taking place on different sets away from the ring, as AJ Styles will take on The Undertaker in a Boneyard Match and John Cena will battle Bray Wyatt in a Firefly Fun House Match.
That is something WWE may ultimately decide to do more of in the long run if those contests prove to be fruitful, according to the 14-time world champion.
Triple H told TV Guide: “People keep saying “once everything gets back to normal” — I don’t think that’s going to happen.
“I think the world has changed. I think that it will get back to some normalcy, but the new normal will be what is normal.

“It’s not going to be what it was before. How people do business, how people interact with each other… I think all of that will change.
“And for us, in some ways, the opportunity of doing these shows without fans and doing WrestleMania [with] these off-site shoots will open our eyes to different ways of doing things that we maybe didn’t see before and will change the product probably for the better in the long run.”
Triple H will not be in action at WrestleMania for the first time since 2007 but was present at the Performance Center during last week’s taping.
The Game could make a non-wrestling appearance at some point as it is common for legends to participate each year during the Showcase of the Immortals.
