That’s a positive negative. The Coronavirus pandemic has changed the way everything works and that has been the case in the wrestling world as well. There are only so many things that can be done normally with the virus hanging over everyone’s head and now the cases are piling up again. Sometimes you get some good news though and that seems to be the case again this time.

SmackDown broadcaster Pat McAfee has revealed that he is now testing negative for the Coronavirus. This comes over a week after a positive test took McAfee off of the August 27 and September 3 SmackDowns. It is not clear when McAfee will be back on the show. In his absence, Corey Graves has called SmackDown with Michael Cole, with Kevin Owens joining the two on August 27.

McAfee has been around WWE for a bit. Check out some of his time with the company:

Opinion: This is great to hear anymore as it is nice to have some positive news on this whole situation for a change. It feels like someone is catching the virus every time you look up so having someone losing it for a change is rather nice. McAfee has been great at what he does every week on SmackDown and it will be awesome to have him back on the air sooner rather than later.
