It’s official, folks. WWE has officially confirmed that they have an employee that was tested positive for the coronavirus.
Fightful first reported nearly a dozen members of the WWE roster had come to them about an alleged positive test of COVID-19. A few hours later, WWE confirmed the news.
A WWE employe has tested positive for COVID-19. We believe this matter is low risk to WWE talent and staff, as the individual and a roommate became symptomatic in the days following exposure to two people working in acute health care on the evening of March 26, after WWE’s TV production on a closed set was already complete. The employee had no contact with anyone from WWE since being exposed to those two individuals, is doing well, and made a complete recovery.
In an earlier memo, it was stated that those who had been “potentially exposed” would be cleared for travel by the evening of Thursday, April 9 at the latest.
According to Sean Ross Sapp, there’s been a mixed reaction from the roster in regards to the company’s decision to resume taping shows live, with some displeased about the working environment while others were willing to work.
With a positive test, one has to wonder if more Superstars are starting to get uneasy about the situation.
I just heard this too, and a lot of the talent I've reached out to aren't happy about it. https://t.co/AAQn1UiqOg
