Report: WWE Carried Out More COVID-19 Testing At The Performance Center Yesterday

TV tapings will resume later on today...

On Tuesday, it emerged that multiple people in WWE had tested positive for coronavirus. Adam Pearce, Renee Young, and Kayla Braxton have since announced they contracted the virus, but the actual number of positive tests could be as high as "two dozen." 

The company is planning to tape double episodes of Monday Night Raw and Friday Night SmackDown later on today and tomorrow and Mike Johnson at PWInsider reported WWE brought all talent and staff to the Performance Center yesterday so they could be tested for COVID-19.

The company carried out drive-through testing on Superstars and staff who were not sent emails on Monday or Tuesday advising them to get tested as soon as possible. Anyone who previously tested negative was also re-tested today. 

Johnson noted anyone who has previously tested positive for coronavirus has been ordered to stay at home and will not be on TV for the next couple of weeks. 

Similarly to last week, no talent or staff will be allowed to enter the Performance Center on Friday until they have received their test results.
