Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings made the announcement at a Monday press briefing, according to ESPN, saying the ruling was made after "some conversation" with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis' office.
"I think initially there was a review that was done. They were not initially deemed an essential business," Demings said.
"With some conversation with the governor's office regarding the governor's order, they were deemed an essential business. So therefore they were allowed to remain open."
WWE, which is filmed in Orlando and Winter Park, had been airing taped shows since the state's order was implemented on April 1, the report said.
"We believe it is now more important than ever to provide people with a diversion from these hard times," the WWE said in a statement.
