WWE is feeling the impact of the coronavirus. A week after the wrestling organization confirmed a positive case from within its ranks, reports have emerged that multiple employees, potentially including superstars, have tested positive for the virus.
So far the company has been hosting shows without fans at its Florida Performance Center. However, with the number of COVID cases in Florida rising to 5,500 and the state struggling to contain the pandemic, this was more or less coming.
According to Pro Wrestling Sheet, “multiple people” which includes in-ring talent have been affected by the virus. Now PW Insider claims the figure of positive individuals could be around “two dozen.”
“Was keeping it quiet but since everyone else is sharing, I feel like it is my responsibility to share this PSA: YOU CAN GET COVID-19 MORE THAN ONCE! I had it back in early March and then thought I was invincible after I recovered. Not true. Dont be dumb like me.”
As of now, tapings have not been canceled or altered.
Questions will now be raised as to whether they can continue filming in build-up to the July 19 Extreme Rules pay-per-view.
