Big news out of the WWE PC today as several WWE employees have reportedly tested positive for COVID-19.
There are multiple reports out there right now that not only a production worker had tested positive but also an in-ring performer.
There’s no word yet on when the employees were tested or how many of them are wrestlers. However, the reports say that at least three people who had been at the PC have tested positive for COVID-19. It was noted that WWE will now be doing more COVID-19 testing before this week’s TV tapings on Friday, to make sure it has not spread among talent and production staff.
It was also reported by PWInsider that the company began emailing talent and staff over the weekend to inform them that there had been a new COVID-19 positive test result. The e-mails advised the employees to get tested for the virus. This report noted that there have since been multiple positives coming out of the new round of testing.
It was reported recently that a developmental talent had tested positive for COVID last week but there wasn’t any additional information.
It is interesting to note that Jon Moxley informed AEW that he has had second-hand exposure to COVID-19. It will be intriguing to see if these two stories are related or not.
