Bryan Alvarez of F4WOnline.com noted the following regarding how Vince McMahon reportedly feels about Covid-19:
“Vince McMahon has never said anything publicly about what he thinks about the coronavirus. He’s never said anything publicly … I have heard from multiple sources that Vince does not think that this is all that bad. I hesitate to even say that. I’m not sitting here saying that he outright thinks its a hoax or whatever.”
“There’s a lot of people in this country that still believe, at worst, it’s a bad flu. The impression that I have been given from people within the company is that’s Vince’s mindset.”(quotes courtesy of WrestlingNews.co)
If this is true, it would help explain why WWE was only doing basic screenings (temperature checks and questionnaires) at the TV tapings until the last few weeks.
