WWE Reportedly Did Not Test Talent For COVID-19 At Recent Tapings, Only Issued Temperature Checks

According to the Wrestling Observer, WWE did not test talent for the COVID-19 virus at the most recent set of tapings from the Performance Center. Reports are that the company continued to check temperatures of their wrestlers, or simply ask if they were not feeling well. There are some within the company who were shocked at this development, especially considering UFC administered temperature checks, but still had fighters test positive for the virus.

WWE had also recently added NXT and PC talent to the crowd to provide fan noise during matches. No word on whether those in attendance went through the same testing protocol.

Stay tuned.
