WWE is hitting the road once again and that always comes with risks attached. You never know what can happen on tour, especially when we’re coming out of a pandemic. There is a vaccine available, but you can’t make someone take it.
Some Superstars such as Nia Jax have spoken in the past about being antivaxxers. Others might agree, but they haven’t been nearly as bold.
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer explained WWE’s mindset on the COVID vaccine. They want everyone to get the shot, but there are some people on the roster who are still remaining steadfast to the idea that they can’t be forced to take the vaccine.
“Most people are, but there are people, both in NXT and the main roster, who have not been vaccinated. The company wants them to, but some of them don’t want to and that’s that, so it is not everyone. I know told from NXT that there are guys who believe the company can’t force them to do it and they’re not going to be forced. They’re the minority, but there are people who aren’t vaccinated in NXT, but most of them are.”
WWE is trying to get everyone vaccinated, but you’re going to run into detractors, just like in the rest of the United States. Hopefully, enough members of the rosters will get the COVID vaccine so they don’t have to run the risk of a big breakout of the virus in the locker room when they hit the road.
What’s your take on the situation? Should WWE Superstars get vaccinated? Sound off in the comments!
