That’s a good sign. The Coronavirus has cranked into a completely new level over the last few weeks as the amount of cases has soared. The virus’ impact has been felt around the world and that does not seem to be changing anytime in the near future. It certainly has impacted the wrestling world and things seem to be getting worse instead of better. Now how has the spread directly impacted WWE?
One of the biggest problems with the entire situation is the most obvious one: wrestlers themselves getting sick. At the end of the day, they are humans and that means the are as vulnerable to the disease as any average person. The disease can spread at an incredibly fast rate and you never can tell who might get it next. So how is the WWE roster doing at keeping themselves safe?
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, no one in WWE has tested positive for the Coronavirus. However, it is not clear how many people in the company have been tested or how often they test employees. Rey Mysterio and the Miz have been reported as being sick, though what kind of symptoms they had were not noted. Dana Brooke self quarantined but her status was never specified.
Those are some valuable names. Check out the three possibly sick wrestlers in healthier times:
Opinion: That’s a good thing to hear but it also sounds like it has a lot of caveats included. It very well may be true that WWE has had no positive tests but how in-depth are they checking? There were already some wrestlers who either were sick with something or self quarantining. That alone raises some flags and while it is possible no one in the company is actually sick with the virus, I don’t know how likely it is.
How long can WWE hold on like this? What should they do after WrestleMania? Let us know in the comments below.
