AEW is testing their staff and wrestlers for the novel coronavirus. What happens if a case is found?

Cody Rhodes took part in a media conference today. He was asked what AEW’s protocol would be if a positive test comes back. The company is doing testing in separate locations and are prepared. They have thought of this possibility, but it wouldn’t shut down the taping.

“Cody talked about the COVID-19 testing they have been doing. It’s not done at Daily’s Place or around other wrestlers/staff and even wrestlers/staff are tested in separate places. Notes that production wouldn’t shut down with a positive test.”

Cody Rhodes also noted that his temperature is taken twice every time he arrives to work. It is checked once in the parking lot and again on his hall where his office is.


AEW is taking COVID-19 very seriously and as of this writing they are the only pro wrestling company conducting COVID-19 testing.
