During Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez read off information that WWE provided in their response to the strike team coming in from the Orange County Board of Health. The data they provided is quite alarming when broken down.
It was said that WWE administered 10,000 COVID-19 tests and discovered “1.5% positive cases.” The current national average is more than 5%. That 1.5% sounds good, but it still means that WWE admitted to at least 150 positive COVID-19 tests in the company.
At least 150 members of the crew, staff, and talent roster have tested positive since the pandemic started. It was reported that 38 people tested positive during WWE’s first outbreak. No number was revealed from their second outbreak, but Alvarez noted that they were told “it was in the double digits.”
He also said “I know for sure” that there were people who tested positive in WWE and their family members were infected. Those numbers were not included in WWE’s numbers.
