One of the dominating headlines in the wrestling world this week has been that of one of WWE’s performers testing positive for COVID-19.
Earlier this week, reports surfaced that WWE had to temporarily suspend production following news that one of their talents tested positive for COVID-19. WWE released a statement at the end of RAW, confirming these reports.
Dave Meltzer, reputable sports journalist, has revealed more details on the situation.
Meltzer noted in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that the performer who tested positive was a female WWE Superstar from NXT. He notes she has not appeared on TV but has been a part of the fans in the crowd and was used on June 9th.
“The performer who tested positive was a female wrestler in NXT who has not been used on television. She has been one of the fans in the crowd, and was last used in that role on 6/9. No positive test results have been reported so hopefully nobody else was infected by her.” Meltzer said.
As of right now, the female superstar in question has not been named.
