COVID-19: WWE Wrestler Tests Positive


While things are slowly re-opening across the united States, we are all still in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic. The fight is regarded as an essential activity in Florida, now, so that the WWE can still host to many weekly events; however, the company just had an employee test positive for the coronavirus.On 15 June, it was revealed that a wrestler who had been at the interpretation Centre, a week before has tested positive for the virus. “The development of the talents, which was the last on the site of the WWE training center on Tuesday, June 9, has been tested positive for COVID-19,” said WWE associate medical director Dr. Jeffrey Dugas in a press release. “Since that time, none of the other people who attended the installation reported symptoms. However, as a precautionary measure and to ensure the health and safety of the company, the interpreters and the staff, all the talent, the production team and on-site employees, training and production facilities will be tested for COVID-19 immediately. Following the results of the test, the WWE plans to proceed with its normal television production schedule. ”

The name of the talent infected has not been freed in the declaration of the WWE. This news comes a day after the backlash PPV, held at the Performance Center. COVID-19 has already caused Wrestlemania changes back in April, and the hall of Fame to be moved to a later date. In addition, it has affected the whole of society, which led to Black Wednesday–a day where many wrestlers have been released from the company.

Fortunately, this one case of a wrestler tests positive in the one, and it should not spread farther.
