Drew McIntyre tested positive for COVID-19, but he wasn’t the only WWE Superstar who is dealing with this issue. The company is working around a few instances of COVID-19 across their brands.
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer mentioned that there are at least four positive cases in WWE including Drew McIntyre. Ringside News exclusively reported that there is a positive case of COVID-19 on the SmackDown side, and this was noted as well. He also brought up one big star who had it, but just returned.
“So there’s at least four, including Drew McIntyre, that I’m aware of that have, or just got over COVID-19 and there may be more. There was one on SmackDown who was scheduled on the show and taken off.”
“There’s one who’s a big star who just came back from COVID, and there’s on on NXT. There are probably others who will be kept out for contact tracing.”
We’ll have to see how WWE works around losing more talent due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Things are still an issues, especially in Florida where WWE records all of their content at this point.
Our thoughts are with anyone dealing with a difficult situation caused by COVID-19.
