WWE had a lot of issues with masks in the Performance Center crowd. They weren’t allowed to wear masks for a while despite the coronavirus pandemic.
Ringside News exclusively reported that Kevin Dunn used a loud speaker to yell at people for wearing masks. This was prior to the discovery of a COVID-19 outbreak within the PC. Now NXT Superstars in the live crowd are wearing masks.
Fightful released an internal message that was sent to NXT Superstars. This message states that masks are now required. It was also noted that social distancing and sanitizing will also be a requirement.
“As a reminder, wearing masks, sanitizing and social distancing will be required at the Performance Center this week and going forward. You’ll be required to wear a mask upon entering and we ask that you adhere to these requirements in order to minimize risks.”
We previously reported that NXT Superstars showed up early on Tuesday morning for drive-thru COVID-19 testing. There is a bit of fear that they won’t get them all back before the Great American Bash is scheduled to tape.
At this time WWE Superstars are still instructed to not disclose coronavirus tests. Dolph Ziggler, MVP, Drew Gulak, and others have all revealed that they are negative for coronavirus.
As of this writing Renee Young, Adam Pearce, Jamie Noble, and Kayla Braxton are the only WWE staff to come forward about their positive tests. An extra who was at WWE events also tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
