Conan O'Brien Pokes Fun At WWE Being Deemed "Essential Business" By Florida

WWE hit the mainstream on Tuesday night as Conan O'Brien, coming live from his home, poked fun at WWE being deemed an "essential business" by the state of Florida.

WWE was deemed "essential business" by the Governor of Florida on April 9, allowing them to continue running live events. Initially, WWE was going to keep running live shows from the Performance Center, but the company changed its taping schedule to tape every two weeks as opposed to live each week. The change was reportedly made for the safety of the performers.

"Here's a controversial one; Florida decided that wrestling is an essential service. Yes, essential. So, it has continued. The WWE has continued through this crisis and we thought, someone should tip their cap to the good folks at WWE," said Conan.

Following his comments, a sarcastic "thank you" video plays highlighting just how essential wrestling is as wrestlers like Mojo Rawley and Sasha Banks, much like healthcare workers, are on the front lines to put smiles on faces.

The video ends with, "Thank you, Florida. Once again, you've out Florida'd yourself."
