Report: WWE Trainees "Frustrated" Over Pandemic Training Schedule

Testing and schedule are among the complaints...

The training schedule at WWE's Performance Center continues to be a source of consternation among the staff and talent, according to a report from Fightful Select.

Sean Ross Sapp's report on the matter cites several unnamed Performance Center staffers and wrestlers as being frustrated by the current training schedule amid the pandemic.

Sapp's report reads, "Plenty of frustrated names at the WWE Performance Center, which has been tradition of late since the pandemic started. Trainees are back at the Performance Center full-time, training five days a week in the midst of the pandemic. Those that we've spoken to at the Performance Center say that they are typically only COVID-19 tested once a week, and train the rest of the week. WWE had initially been doing virtual classes, before a few days a week."

The Performance Center had been the site of more than one reported outbreak, the most recent example coming in October. Because of contact tracing and quarantines associated with that reported outbreak, some elements of NXT's Halloween Havoc special on October 28 had to be altered.
