As confirmed by WWE via a statement, yesterday saw their first positive test amongst talent for COVID-19.

According to a report by Wrestling Inc, WWE will postpone the tapings planned for today at the Performance Center in order to test all talent and personnel for the virus.

It is said that the talent who tested positive was last on site at the PC on June 9th and is part of the group of trainees in true development rather than being a part of any of the TV rosters.

According to the report, WWE had planned to tape next week’s Raw and Smackdown on Tuesday with two episodes of NXT taped on Wednesday.

The plan is to apparently push the Raw and Smackdown tapings to Wednesday with no word on when the NXT tapings would then take place.
