An on-screen talent, who is not a member of the WWE roster has tested positive for Covid-19, according to a report from Pro Wrestling Sheet who note that the person in question went out to dinner with friends who work in the healthcare industry, following the completion of WWE’s last batch of tapings, which included WrestleMania 36 and then began feeling symptomatic, leading to the person being tested for Coronavirus.
The person later tested positive and immediately went into quarantine, but has since been cleared of the virus and is feeling much better.
WWE released a statement on the matter which read, “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.”
