WWE cancels TV tapings after wrestler tests positive for coronavirus

WWE cancels TV tapings after wrestler tests positive for coronavirus”

This is contrary to Stephanie McMahon's previous comments as she told Justin Barrasso at Sports Illustrated back in April that nobody with a temperature above 38 degrees celsius was allowed to enter the Performance Center.

The non-PC recruits were friends of the roster.

Bryan Alvarez of Wrestling Observer adds that those in the crowd were not allowed to wear a mask.

The last line is in reference to reports that the people in attendance were not allowed to wear face masks if they wanted to take part in the tapings.

"A developmental talent, who was last on site at WWE's training facility on Tuesday, June 9, has tested positive for COVID-19", WWE Associate Medical Director Dr. Jeffrey Dugas said in a statement obtained by E!

The audience members at last night's WWE RAW taping weren't wearing any face masks during the show and now the promotion says it's because they met social distancing guidelines and weren't required.

Wrestling Inc. first reported that the fans signed waivers at the show stating that WWE wasn't liable if they contracted COVID-19 and that there could be inherent risk attending the event.

WWE wrestlers and employees will be tested for COVID-19 after a developmental talent tested positive on June 9. Fightful has learned that ongoing testing has been taking place all morning into 2 PM. Since that time, no other individuals that attended the facility have reported symptoms. They consisted of local diehard fans as well as friends and family. The company noted that attendance was below 20% capacity and social distancing guidelines were adhered to with at least six feet between parties.

Jon Alba also posted a thread noting that he'd heard those in attendance were not discouraged from wearing masks.
