More details on Kevin Owens not attending WWE TV recordings due to COVID-19 concerns


As previously reported, Kevin Owens did not attend WWE television recordings on Wednesday.Despite living in the area, Owens decided not to appear due to a positive development test for COVID-19 earlier this week. Months ago, WWE told talent that they did not have to work during the coronavirus pandemic if they felt uncomfortable and would not be punished for their decision.

Dave Meltzer reported Wrestling Observer Radio that Owens’ wife’s grandfather has died of COVID-19 in recent weeks. Owens’ family were clearly concerned that he was working in the building where someone had just tested positive for the disease.

Owens is expected to return to the next series of television recordings. The next set of RAW recordings is scheduled for June 29.

Owens last appeared on RAW last Monday when he defeated Angel Garza.
