Pro Wrestling Sheet is reporting that multiple people in WWE, who have been at the Performance Center, tested positive for COVID-19 this week, including in-ring talent.
We’d previously reported that a Smackdown taping was delayed due to testing.
It’s not clear when the WWE talent was tested, or how many have been tested, or even how many are in-ring talent. However, Ryan Satin and Pro Wrestling Sheet’s sources have reported that at least three who have been at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando recieved positive results this week.
More testing will now have to be done by WWE’s medical team before more television production occurs to stop the spread of the deadly virus.

The state reported 5,508 new cases overnight, according to data published by the health department, bringing the total in the state to 109,014. The previous highest single-day jump in new cases was 4,049 new cases reported on Saturday.
In addition to rising cases, the percentage of tests coming back positive is also on the rise, indicating that the surge is not due to ramped-up testing. The state reported that 15.91% of all tests came back positive Wednesday, up from 10.82% on Tuesday.
