WWE Confirms First Case Of Coronavirus

Pro Wrestling Sheet revealed that the infected person is not a wrestler but an on-camera talent.

According to the publication, the person (whose identity was not disclosed) started experiencing COVID-19 symptoms in late March. He or she is believed to have contracted the virus after a dinner outing with friends who are workers in the health sector.
WWE confirmed the news and said in a statement:

“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.”

The development comes after the company revealed that they will be resuming live recordings without fans starting at their training facility in Orlando, .

“We believe it is now more important than ever to provide people with a diversion from these hard times,” WWE told ESPN.

“We are producing content on a closed set with only essential personnel in attendance following appropriate guidelines while taking additional precautions to ensure the health and wellness of our performers and staff.

As a brand that has been woven into the fabric of society, WWE and its Superstars bring families together and deliver a sense of hope, determination and perseverance.”
