They do have a bit of knowledge on the subject. If you have been paying attention to the news as of late, you have probably heard about the Coronavirus. The disease has been making its way around the world and killed thousands of people, which has caused several organizations to change plans. This has included sports leagues either canceling events or not allowing fans to attend. With WrestleMania 36 just around the corner, WWE has been in the news related to the Coronavirus, but it turns out that something is a little different this time around.
One of the main things that you will hear people who have have contracted the virus doing is quarantining themselves to help prevent the spread of the disease. In addition to this, various companies have been asking employees to work from home instead of coming in to work and possibly contaminating others. WWE would be no different, but they might not have to be yet.
Over the weekend, Brad Shepard reported that a WWE employee, who did not work at the main office in Stamford, Connecticut, was in contact with the Coronavirus and was self-quarantined, with WWE sending out a company wide email over the subject. However, the verified WWE On FOX Facebook account responded, saying that the story should not be listened to and to avoid any information from Shepard on this subject. The comment has since been deleted, but the verified WWE On FOX Reddit account commented that they did not delete the post.
This isn’t something that should be taken lightly, so we’ll go with something that is. Check out some completely unrelated yet funny WWE moments:
Opinion: This is the kind of thing that could get out of hand in a hurry and if it is not true, it’s good that it was shot down so fast. There are already enough people worried about the situation to not have inaccurate reports out there and I’d be more likely to trust an account even tangentially affiliated with WWE than over “a source has said”. Maybe it is true in the end, but for now, one of these sources sounds a lot more reliable than the other.
