Over the last 24 hours, there has been some speculation on the identity of the person who tested positive for COVID-19.
As WWE noted on Saturday in their statement, the person who tested positive and has now recovered is someone who appears on-air but is not part of the roster. That could mean someone on the announce team or one of the referees.
Here is the statement sent out by WWE on Saturday:
“A WWE employee 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.”
They were the subject of rumors because they did not appear at the last set of tapings that led up to WrestleMania. Graves did appear as the host of the WrestleMania pre-shows that were taped in Stamford, CT. I was told that the person who tested positive was not at SmackDown on Friday.
