Recently, an anonymous WWE Talent claimed that WWE is silencing its talents and they are not allowed to share their COVID-19 results with anyone, even if they test positive for the disease. The anonymous WWE wrestlers spoke to Wrestling Inc.
about it via email. It appears that the condition inside WWE is quite bad. The talent claimed that talent relations stated that they cannot make any statements or speak publicly about anything related to COVID-19. Apparently only wrestlers were asked not to say anything and not other employees.
Renee Young, Jamie Noble, Kayla Braxton, and Adam Pearce are also WWE employees but are not wrestlers. They clearly stated on social media that they tested positive for COVID-19.
WWE: COVID-19 Positive Reullts Being Kept Secret According to Anonymous Talent
WWE is actually paying the bills for all the wrestlers and employees that have tested positive for COVID-19.
They are also offering treatments. WWE is apparently going to handle public relations for testing and “only those that needed to know about our condition would know as HIPPA laws would prevent them from making our names public."
The talent also spoke about the questionnaire that WWE asks talents to fill. One of the questions asks them about whether or not they put themselves at risk. They basically ask them if they had attended any large gathering without using a mask.
It was also noted that wrestlers that went to beaches and amusement parks were still allowed to perform. Talents are now allowed to wear masks while visiting the WWE Performance Center. Previously, they were not allowed to wear masks.
This was a decision that was taken very recently and is probably due to the fact that many wrestlers have tested positive for COVID-19. According to the various reports, more than 10 wrestlers are infected and will most likely not be allowed to perform.
The talent also stated that friends and family members were allowed to attend the shows live at the WWE Performance Center which would put them at a huge risk. WWE has stopped holding live events and they hold their TV shows at the WWE Performance Center inside an empty arena.
Even wrestlers from other famous promotions, such as All Elite Wrestling, are also testing positive. Jon Moxley and his wife Ranee Young and currently undergoing treatment for COVID-19 even though Jon is not positive right now. AEW is the other promotion that can hold its events inside empty arenas and still operate even during the pandemic.
