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.

According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, WWE has changed their protocol when it comes to quarantines after the recent outbreak. It was said that they now have to wait a

Everyone has to do a five day quarantine, not ten because that’s new CDC recommendations. And they then have to test negative twice, on two consecutive days, which means it’s essentially 6 days between when you test positive and when you can wrestle.


WWE pulled several Superstars from the recent Holiday tour live event due to the likelihood of them contracting COVID-19. We will have to wait and see if they will make it in time for the WWE Day 1 pay-per-view on January 1st next year.
