So far, only a few people in WWE have said publicly that they have tested positive for COVID-19. Renee Young, Adam Pearce, Jamie Noble and Kayla Braxton are among the names that have said publicly that they tested positive.
There are many more who have tested positive but are keeping quiet. Bryan Alvarez noted on Wrestling Observer Live that WWE does not want anyone to go public about their positive test.
“I can tell you for a fact that the company doesn’t want anyone tweeting about it if they are positive,” Alvarez said. “I have heard other names that have tested positive that have not tweeted about it.”
The in-ring talent and staff are not the only people who have tested positive. Alvarez added, “There are some friends and family that are now affected.”
More news will likely get out in the next couple of days. As noted earlier, Raw has been postponed and they are hoping to tape the show on Saturday. The reason why the show was postponed is that some COVID-19 tests came back and the company was not happy with the results.
Until this week, wrestlers were discouraged from wearing masks but they will be allowed to wear them going forward.
