The COVID-19 pandemic has been raging in the United States for just under a year now. A vaccine exists, and it is being administered, but WWE isn’t giving it out to their talent.
According to Fightful Select, WWE talent were told via their talent relations app that they will not be receiving a COVID-19 vaccination through the company. It was then told to them that it is their own responsibility to get the vaccine.
This surprised several WWE talent, that were expecting this to be set up through WWE, while others that we spoke to figured because of the nature of their status as independent contractors that it would end up this way.
Several WWE Superstars were reportedly surprised by this news. They expected WWE to set them up with a vaccination. Others figured that they would be responsible for their own since they are independent contractors.
Some people within WWE do not believe in the vaccine. Nia Jax is one who has been very outspoken, It was not noted if the vaccine will be required, but the company is not assisting anyone in getting those injections.
