The COVID-19 pandemic took over the entire world last year and affected several industries all over the world. This included the pro wrestling business, which was severely affected by the pandemic. Several pro wrestlers tested positive for the virus and it resulted in numerous shows being postponed as well.

As reported earlier, several WWE Superstars recently tested positive for COVID-19. To add to that, the condition worsened as more wrestlers and members of staff tested positive for the virus.

WWE has already started their Holiday Tour and it seems quite a few talents have missed out on the events. According to PWInsider, the likes of Big E, Bianca Belair, Becky Lynch, Zelina Vega, and Bobby Lashley missed the events at Madison Square Garden.

For the Tampa Florida events, Roman Reigns, Shinsuke Nakamura and Xavier Woods missed out. WWE opened each event as they noted that talents would be missing the shows due to the “effects of COVID-19.”  


As reported earlier, Roman Reigns was pulled from the event but the cause was not known. Seth Rollins previously revealed his own positive test for COVID-19 as well. It seems the company will have a difficult couple of weeks due to COVID-19.
