Jerry Lawler clarifies his tweet about WWE’s COVID-19 vaccination policy

WWE put in a COVID-19 policy last summer after there were several outbreaks among its talent. The company also tests everyone ahead of each show and enforces a mask policy backstage.

Jerry Lawler took to Twitter today to note that WWE had told everyone that they needed to be fully vaccinated before the Hell in a Cell PPV next month.

Lawler’s initial post had a photo of him getting the vaccination and wrote in the caption, “WWE called and said everyone needs to be fully vaccinated before the next pay per view in June, so here I am! Didn’t hurt a bit!!!”

This caused fans to talk as Lawler made it seem this was an edict put out by WWE that all talent had to be vaccinated. That’s not the case, according to the Hall of Famer. He sent out this clarification regarding his first tweet:

“1st let me comment on some of the comments after this tweet of mine. The WWE has the same covid policy as MLB. If you’re fully vaccinated, you’re good to go. If not, you must still wear a mask at the event and be tested before an event.

Some people question why I waited so long to get vaccinated. It’s because I already had covid back around the 1st of the year I had antibodies and didn’t feel the need.”

WWE will resume live event touring on July 16th. They just announced more dates today.
