WWE confirms positive COVID-19 test for screen talent


Fightful’s Sean Ross Sapp has been reported to have received numerous WWE talents and a few other industry figures from an internal WWE memo, informing them that an on-screen personality had been tested positive for coronavirus.

The memo (which named the individual, although Fightful chose to remove his name from the report) stated that the individual was positive after they and their roommate showed symptoms of the illness. The person was last reported to have had contact with his WWE peers on March 26, while production was wrapped up on WrestleMania recordings at the Orlando Performance Center.

Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet just released a WWE statement publicly confirming the positive test.

The statement reads: “A WWE worker tested positive for COVID-19. We believe this case poses a low risk to WWE talent and staff, as the individual and a roommate became symptomatic in the days following exposure to two people working in acute health care in the evening March 26, after WWE television production on a closed set has already been completed. The employee has had no contact with anyone in WWE since he was exposed to these two people, is doing well, and has fully recovered. “

Production continues for WWE TV shows at the Performance Center, when Vince McMahon made the decision on Friday to resume live programming.
