Welcome to Anfostar)- The best in the ring, the Legend and WWE executive Paul 'Triple H' Levesque enrolled Ariel Helwani on Wednesday to address the complications of organising WrestleMania 36 production in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
When Triple H asked Is it possible that if you didn't have the Performance Center you'd be in a much different situation where you possibly could not put on WrestleMania 36?
"I thing We would be facing a difficult for the time being." Triple H said. "But the Performance Center ended up being worth its weight in gold, That was sort of the intent from the beginning, to not only be able to train there but be able to create content there on a 24/7 basis."
"We have gone to use the WWE Performance Center for our past events, We used it last year when we did a Super Bowl halftime show, that people really enjoyed," Triple H added. "It's been used for that purpose, but in this situation, it really turned out to be the saving grace of us being able to continue to entertain our fans".
Later Triple H has the question to be answered and that was about the critics who say WrestleMania should not go on.
"There's going to be critics of everything. I think we're doing this to provide what we believe is an essential service in entertaining our fans, entertaining people around the world. And I think you see that with ESPN picking up past WrestleManias, and Fox, NBC and that partnership, we can put out content. Even our historic content is evergreen in nature because of the storytelling aspect of what we do. And I say this a lot, we're more akin to the "Rocky" movie than we are actual boxing. Once the event takes place live in boxing you're kind of done with it".
"With us, you'll watch it over and over again, because it's the story, and the characters, and the emotion that you feel. You'll go back and relive those epic moments Hogan slamming Andre the Giant at WrestleMania 3, or whatever connects with you from the past".
"We're working with the government officials very closely locally. We're taking all of the precautions, we're screening our talent. Anybody that's uncomfortable doing this doesn't have to. The crew and the staff are very, very limited. We're working the talent waves, where we bring them in for their particular stuff and then they can leave, and keeping people as separated as possible -- trying to do this in as safe away as possible, while still being able to perform a vital service".
As we know Pro Wrestling Sheet reported that that Roman Reigns didn’t feel comfortable doing any more of the Performance Center shows during the coronavirus pandemic because he’s immunocompromised from his battle with leukaemia and didn’t want to risk his health. Triple H also replied on "Roman Reigns says he won't be part of WrestleMania".

"Well it's a funny thing" Triple H added. "I think you can watch our business in multiple different ways, and one of them is the storyline aspect of it. Another way is the online component of it, and the reality of it behind the scenes. Roman has his situation and his reasons for doing the things that he's doing, but I will say from our standpoint and the storyline standpoint, it's going to play out in a unique manner, and we want it to play out that way. It's not necessarily putting me in an awkward position, it's just for me saying, "I don't want to give away the ending of the movie before the movie takes place."
"I think everybody just has to watch and see how this unfolds".
