When did WWE’s Current Storyline Begin?

On March 8th 2020, WWE held their Elimination Chamber PPV from the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, PA. 

Shayna Baszler won the main event blowing through all competitors on her way to facing Becky Lynch at WrestleMania 36 for the Raw Women’s Championship.

The next night: March 9th, WWE held Monday Night Raw at the Capital One Arena in Washington DC. 

Drew McIntyre continued a campaign that would see him defeat Brock Lesnar for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania.

But after that night in Washington DC . . . the tour ended . . . at least the tour ended for wrestling fans. 

The nation quickly acknowledged the COVID-19 pandemic, gathering in public places came to a hault, and WWE fans didn’t attend another live event until WrestleMania 37 – approximately 13 months later.

Still that WrestleMania 37 return of the fans was just a one night thing. 

WWE fans didn’t get a proper return until the July 16, 2021 episode of Smackdown – a full 16 months removed from the March 9 2021 Washington DC edition of Monday Night Raw. 

While the pandemic held a stranglehold over live attendance, it was during this time when the current WWE storylines began to take shape. 

Just when did the current WWE storyline begin? 

That’s the question we’re tackling on today’s episode of the Daily Wrestling News Show.
