She posted another update a few hours later while WWE NXT was going on saying that her mother had tested positive for the coronavirus and then got admitted to the Intensive Care Unit. She also mentioned how her mother is asthmatic.
“My mom tested positive for covid. She is in the ICU right now. She is asthmatic and is on oxygen. Thank you for all the thoughts & prayers.”
As per the coronavirus health guidelines, Lana has to go into quarantine for 14 days if she was staying with her mother. There’s no word yet on if WWE will force The Ravishing Russian to quarantine if she’s been around her mom.
At present on TV, she was involved in a storyline with Natalya on the WWE RAW brand. Both of them last appeared during the June 29 episode teasing the formation of a new alliance on the flagship show.
But those plans to form a new tag team may not be taken forward in Lana’s absence on Raw. In the meantime, Pro Wrestling Sheet now reports that more people in the company who were present at recent WWE tapings at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida have tested positive for coronavirus.
WWE has reportedly conducted almost 1,500 coronavirus tests since they started thorough testing in late June.
Besides taking more precautionary safety measures and coronavirus testing, WWE recently a mask mandate for all the talents. They will be fined $500 for not wearing a mask.
The second offense of not wearing a mask while being at TV tapings, unless performing in front of the camera, will cause in a fine of $1,000. Producers Jamie Noble, Adam Pearce, and on-screen talents Kayla Braxton and Renee Young were victimized by the virus, previously.
