Update: WWE reportedly ran additional COVID-19 testing this week.

Original: WWE had to administer company-wide testing when a positive COVID-19 as discovered. They apparently found a few more positive cases.

Pro Wrestling Sheet reports that “multiple people in WWE” tested positive for COVID-19 including talent.

It is reported that at least three people who have been at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando tested positive. It was not noted “when they were tested exactly.” The company will now do more testing.

Our sources say more testing will now be done by WWE’s medical team before this week’s TV production to make sure the virus has not spread amongst talent/behind the scenes workers.

Florida is seeing huge COVID-19 spikes. There were 5,500 confirmed new cases on Wednesday alone. This is three times what it was a week ago. The Orlando International Airport that WWE staff and Superstars must use is also highly infected with COVID-19.

We are not sure who in WWE tested positive, but this is a very real problem that WWE is having to face.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
