The ongoing coronavirus pandemic has affected the lives and livelihood of many people across the globe. Due to the impacts of the current pandemic, former WWE wrestler, Scott Steiner’s Shoney’s Kitchen & Bar is closing for good.
The current NWA pro wrestler and his wife Christa opened Shoney’s Kitchen & Bar in Acworth, Georgia in 2016. They opened the restaurant in their neighbourhood when an older Shoney’s was closing down. Scott Steiner famously enlisted the help of fellow former superstars like Kevin Nash to help its grand opening.
After four years of catering to fans and Georgian residents, the current pandemic and lockdown have resulted in the closing of the business. The news was announced on the official Facebook page of Scott Steiner’s restaurant. The post read: “We have closed this business due to COVID.19.”
We have closed this business due to Covid-19. We appreciate your patronage over the past 4 years.

Although the WWE has found a way to continue its business through the COVID-19 pandemic, this has unfortunately not been the same case for many businesses. Many small business have suffered as a result of protective social distancing and isolation measures to help combat against the spread of the novel coronavirus.
As for WWE’s continued run through COVID-19 concerns, the company drew some major attention earlier this Summer when it was reported that multiple employees had tested positively for COVID-19. WWE also made many cuts to its roster and staff over pandemic concerns and is continuing to make adjustments to their program.
