- WWE is encouraging fans to donate to the American Red Cross to assist victims of Hurricane Dorian. The WWE Community website used this link to direct fans to a WWE-specific page on the Red Cross website. As of 11:15pm ET on Friday night, the page shows that 3 donations have been made through the link, for a total of $85. The page accepts PayPal or credit/debit cards, and $10 is the minimum online payment.
As noted, Dorian forced WWE to change their plans this week as a set of WWE NXT live events in Florida were re-scheduled and referee tryouts at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando were postponed.
WWE also tweeted this link to the donation page and encouraged fans to help:
