Multiple individuals who were at WWE Performance Center test positive for COVID-19
Ryan Satin is reporting that multiple people in WWE, including in-ring talent, have tested positive for coronavirus this week.
Satin says that at least three who have been at the WWE Performance Center tested positive in the latest round of testing. More testing is being done to ensure that there are no more infected people in the PC before television tapings resume.
There are no tapings scheduled for this week as everything was taped last week and production resumes on Monday with two episodes of Monday Night Raw. On Tuesday there will be two episodes of Smackdown taped and NXT tapes two episodes on Wednesday. There are no further dates of tapings as per the original schedule past July 1 so far.
In an appearance on The Bump this morning, Kevin Owens confirmed that he decided to stay home and not go to work when a developmental talent tested positive last week. He said he told those in charge that he’s going home and no one flinched or tried any pushback.
WWE tested all their staff and Superstars at the PC on June 16 following their first positive result.
