WWE Survivor Series hold despite ISIS threat
WWE boss Triple H has responded to the possibility that ISIS could attack WWE’s Survivor Series, which hold on Sunday night.
The event was named amongst a group of attacks the terrorist group was planning following multiple attacks in France over a week ago.
Triple H stated however that the yearly show, which holds at the Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia, will go ahead as planned.
“Federal, state and local law enforcement authorities have confirmed there is no specific or credible information involving a threat against tomorrow’s WWE Survivor Series at Philips Arena,” Triple H said in a statement.
“However, WWE and Philips Arena have coordinated with the appropriate agencies and law enforcement, and significantly increased security measures to ensure the safety of all those in attendance, which is our highest priority.”
“Doors will open at 6 p.m. to help fans avoid any delays in entering the arena due to the additional precautionary security procedures put in place. Fans are encouraged to take public transportation (MARTA) to the event and are advised that bags will not be permitted in the arena.”
The FBI agreed with Triple H that there was no credible source behind the threat,but were still taking it seriously.
“We have, however, made the proper notifications as we continue to work closely with our law enforcement and private sector partners to keep our community safe,” an FBI statement read.
