The bosses aren’t happy. The Coronavirus has changed the way the wrestling world works and that is going to be the case for a long time to come. There was no telling how bad things were going to get and they might have actually been worse than expected. WWE has been rocked pretty hard by the situation and things have gotten even worse in the last week. Several WWE names have confirmed that they have tested positive for the virus, and WWE is not happy with one of them.
Over the course of the last few days, a handful of WWE personalities have announced that they have the Coronavirus. This includes Renee Young, who hosted the series WWE Backstage, until it was canceled earlier this week. It has been a rough few days for Young, and now things are looking even worse for her as WWE did not like something that she said about her status.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE is unhappy with Young for publicly announcing her positive test. The company does not want wrestlers or people who work for WWE to announce a positive test. As of Saturday, WWE has not publicly acknowledged any of the announced positive tests. There is no word as to why WWE would not want the people to announce their individual results.
Young has been a big asset to the company. Check out some of her work:
Opinion: This is pretty lame on WWE’s part and I can’t say I’m surprised in the slightest. WWE has certainly had an attitude of charge ahead full steam despite the Coronavirus and suggesting that something might be wrong in the company probably wouldn’t make them very happy. I’m not sure how much good that stance is doing though, as it makes WWE look fairly ridiculous rather than like some big safe haven. Hopefully Young gets better soon and isn’t in trouble, because she is too good to leave on the sidelines.
What should Young do next? Is WWE being unreasonable? Let us know in the comments below.
