Despite all pro sports sitting on the sidelines due to the coronavirus pandemic, pro wrestling and UFC have continued to push forward and now have Florida fully on board as a willing partner.
But how did sports become an essential business and so quickly? Spectrum News 13 of central Florida did an investigative report and on this new Josh Nason's Punch-Out, one of the team members involved -- sports reporter and broadcaster Jon Alba -- joins the show to discuss the story.
We talk about what triggered their look into Governor DeSantis' updated executive order, why it affects more than just WWE, and the timeline in which a financial investment by a super PAC headed up by Linda McMahon may have played a significant role.
I also ask the question: why Florida?
We also chat about Jon's side wrestling podcast project, Living The Gimmick.
