WWE discovered a positive coronavirus test in the developmental system and then everyone needed to be tested. They soon discovered additional positive results.

WWE changed up their television tapings in huge way due to the positive test results. Now they will tape both main roster shows on Friday and Saturday.

F4WOnline noted that “multiple people which included in-ring talent” tested positive for COVID-19. This also includes at least one Superstar who was slated to be a part of the television tapings this week. The company will now test every time before they run television tapings.

One WWE talent noted that they were told COVID-19 testing will now take place at every taping and that “we’re expected to isolate,” and stay in their rooms or homes at this point. One person said that they have been told they will be tested twice this week. Those in Orlando today were given a two-hour heads up for a mandatory test.


Florida is ravaged with the novel coronavirus. It is concerning that so many things seem to be gravitating toward that state in the current pandemic.

The Orlando International Airport ran testing and 260 out of 500 employees were positive for COVID-19. That is the airport that WWE Superstars and staff must use.

We will keep a close eye on this story right here at Ringside News.
