Johnny Depp stayed at the bottom of the mountain when they filmed Pirates of the Caribbean. “It’s a very special part of the world and it’s been rebuilt after Cyclone Debbie, but now the tourism industry has taken a knock as there’s no international tourists.” Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayNext playlist itemMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 2:09Loaded: 0%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -2:09 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedQuality Levels540p540p360p360p270p270pAutoA, selectedAudio Tracken (Main), selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

So many of our buyers are working remotely anyway.“Next time there’s a pandemic they will escape the lockdown as things are pretty much normal compared to down south. Rentals are going nuts.

This was the 32nd edition of one of WWE’s most important special events which is also known as the “Biggest Party of the Summer.”The Main EventIn the main event, Seth Rollins challenged Brock Lesnar for the WWE Universal Championship. Rollins had won the title from Lesnar back at Wrestlemania 35, but the ‘Beast Incarnate’ took it back when he cashed in his ‘Money In The Bank’ contract at the Extreme Rules last month. Even in this contest, the former UFC Champion completely manhandled Rollins with some brutal blows. Not only during the contest but even in the lead up to the event, the ‘Beast’ had done a lot of damage to the former member of ‘The Shield’. Lesnar, who became the youngest ever WWE Champion back in Summerslam 2002 was constantly targetting Rollins’ injured ribs. Nonetheless, ‘The Architect’ had the last laugh with a frog splash to Lesnar through an announce table, followed by 2 Curb Stomps to pick up the win. Believe it or not but as soon as Rollins emerged triumphant, he received thunderous applause from the crowd. Surprisingly, the same crowd was booing him when Lesnar was all over for him and he was hardly putting up a fight. READ: John Cena Has A Special Message For The WWE Family Ahead Of Summerslam 2019.
