It was reported via WrestlingInc earlier today that WWE has been testing talents of the RAW roster for mumps. WWE responded to these reports and issued the following statement:
“We have confirmed that three of our performers have been diagnosed with a viral infection. As a precautionary measure, we are ensuring in-ring performers and staff are tested and immunized in accordance with recommended medical guidelines.”
Those three performers rumored to have been diagnosed are Roman Reigns, Bray Wyatt and Bo Dallas. Pro Wrestling Sheet reports that the company found out about Wyatt & Reigns late in the week and came up with a plethora of replacement options, with Kurt Angle returning seemingly being the best one. Same for AJ vs. Finn.
