A WWE NXT developmental talent has been tested positive for the coronavirus as per the recent updates which brought out health scare amongst the WWE superstars. This led to the cancellation of the scheduled tapings on June 10th as all the employees had to go through medical tests. Plus, now some of the superstars do want to go into a hiatus just like Roman Reigns.
WWE allowed fans to enter the Performance Center in Orlando without wearing masks. They were also forced to sign waivers which removed any liability from WWE if any of them get detected with coronavirus symptoms. While this enhanced WWE’s taping experience from earlier, it increased the chances of getting infected for the in-ring talents and they did express their health uncertainties.
Wrestle Talk reported that some WWE Superstars were considering taking a long vacation as the coronavirus situation continues to deteriorate overtimes. Roman Reigns and Sami Zayn were the two names who denied to perform amid the COVID-19 situation. But now quite a few new names are thinking to join them.
“Some of the roster that we’ve spoken to are becoming increasingly frustrated with the lack of communication from WWE during the pandemic, and some are considering asking for time off as we’ve seen with Roman Reigns and Sami Zayn,” informed the source.
While WWE openly stated that every talent has its right to choose whether they work in TV tapings during the coronavirus outbreak, it’ll be interesting to see whether they can grant time-offs to those talents who do want it, moving forward. The pandemic is still a real concern especially around the United States of America as the death toll crossed the 1-lakh point. Plus, a positive COVID-19 case shook WWE to its core.
According to a statement sent to WrestlingINC.com and other media outlets, WWE informed that the talent who was tested positive for coronavirus was last spotted on-site at WWE’s training facility on Tuesday, June 9. Since then, no other individuals who attended the facility at the PC have shown symptoms.
WWE noted that all the talents, production crew and employees at the training and production facilities have been tested for coronavirus, immediately to ensure the health and safety. Once the test results will be in, the company plans to continue with its television production schedule.
