Angel Garza is not afraid of contracting the coronavirus.
That was evident before the WWE superstar’s match with Rey Mysterio on Monday Night Raw where he could be seen kissing a woman in the crowd.
Fans thougth he put his life at risk, but Garza would soon take to Twitter and respond by saying (in Spanish) that coronavirus doesn’t exist.
He then doubled down by stating his lips are the “perfect cure” for the virus.
The WWE implemented a “no-touching policy” between wrestlers and fans at meet and greets, autograph signings and other public events, according to PWInsider.com.
Huge events like WrestleMania 36 in Tampa, Florida are still scheduled to go on, which will take place on April 5th.
“The health and safety of our fans, performers and employees are our top priorities and we are monitoring the situation closely with our partners and government officials in Tampa Bay,” the WWE said in a statement. “We remain committed to hosting WrestleMania at Raymond James Stadium on Sunday, April 5, and like other entertainment properties in the U.S., there are currently no plans to cancel or postpone our upcoming events.”
Stephanie McMahon and executive vice president John Saboor spoke with the Tampa Bay Times and stated how serious they are taking this situation with the coronavirus.
“The health and safety of not only our fan base, but also our superstars, really does come first,” McMahon said per Comicbook.com. “We don’t want to put anyone in a bad situation ever, regardless of the circumstance. Those are not risks worth taking.”
“Given the number of live events that (WWE) does, it’s constantly monitoring global events,” Saboor said. “There are active and ongoing discussions at play internally, like there are in any sector of American business, and certainly families as a whole. So I think those will continue.”
