WWE couple sent home from TV tapings for COVID-19 precautionary reason

WWE has stepped up its precautionary measures during the coronavirus outbreak in recent weeks after a developmental talent who worked as a fan during TV tapings tested positive for the virus.

Before that, WWE had been only taking temperatures and asking whether people felt sick in order to be allowed into the Performance Center to work the tapings.

Once the Performance Center recruit tested positive, WWE made the decision to test everyone for the virus before tapings. As a result, this has led to a spike in positive tests conducted.

Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that producer TJ Wilson, who wrestled as Tyson Kidd, came to the testing site done by the company on June 25th with a fever.

Wilson and his wife, Natalya, were tested for the virus. Meltzer is under the belief that they took two different tests. The good news is that they tested negative. However, the company asked both to sit out this weekend as a precautionary measure.

It should be noted that Natalya showed no symptoms. With it taking several days for people to show symptoms that have the virus, this is why WWE sent both Wilson and Natalya home in hopes of not spreading the virus in case they have it.
