WWE had to test all of their Superstars and staff for the novel coronavirus yesterday. This was quite a stressful process to endure, but everyone was eventually tested.
A member of the WWE NXT roster tested positive for COVID-19. This caused the company to do widespread testing yesterday. Now the company is forced to tape a ton of television content today.
Bryan Alvarez noted on Wrestling Observer Live that the WWE developmental talent who tested positive for coronavirus was someone who wrestled on television.
“A performer tested positive for COVID-19 as far as I know it was someone who has been wrestling. This was a week ago. Everyone else heard about it when you and I did on social media.”
WWE’s public statement on the positive coronavirus test stated that the infected individual was last in the WWE Performance Center on June 9th. That was a Tuesday, so they were likely in the live crowd for main roster television tapings.
There was a previous positive COVID-19 test after WrestleMania, but Superstars were given a heads up. No such warning was given this time around. The Superstars and staff were not tested for coronavirus at that time.
Superstars were informed about a new positive coronavirus result and then told that the next day will include widespread testing. At this time no results of that COVID-19 testing have come back. The company is still carrying on with plans to record television content today.
