May 4, 2020 Observer Newsletter: Florida and UFC/WWE/AEW, more news


Florida has become the new haven for the risk takers in sports who are considered essential services in that state.

WWE this past week taped all its television through 5/11 at the Performance Center in Orlando.

UFC and AEW will be taping nearly on top of each other, with UFC airing live shows on 5/9, 5/13 and 5/16 from the Vystar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, while AEW has shows scheduled less than a mile away at Daily’s Place on 5/6, 5/7 (taped for 5/13), 5/20, 5/23 and 5/27. UFC will be doing a show on 5/23, but Dana White said that would not be in Florida. That show will go head-to-head with AEW’s Double or Nothing PPV, but not from the same location.

Going head-to-head really doesn’t matter from a live standpoint since there will be no fans at either event, however UFC will go head-to-head in some form on 5/13 with both AEW and NXT, and on 5/23, they will be head-to-head as well on either streaming vs. PPV.
