WWE’s Renee Young It has COVID-19, revealed today on Twitter. Young’s announcement comes after news broke today that at least three more people present on the latest series of WWE television recordings had tested positive for COVID-19. Young’s husband, Jon Moxley, also withdrew from tonight’s AEW episode Dynamite due to possible contact with the disease.
“Man. What a few days,” Young tweeted. “My show is canceled and I get Covid. Wear your masks and wash your hands. Stay safe, everyone ❤️”
Although the professional wrestling business has escaped relatively unscathed thus far from the coronavirus pandemic despite continuing to produce shows during the event, that moment may be coming to an end as the outbreak in Florida increases. Florida is a major hotspot right now, and some states, including New York and Connecticut, are imposing travel restrictions on people who come from there, which could affect the ability of WWE and AEW to attract talent to tap. . But WWE may have already passed that point now that some of its biggest stars like Young are catching COVID.
At PWInsider, Mike Johnson He reported that at least one source said the situation could be much more serious than the one portrayed so far, with up to two dozen cases. However, Johnson points out that the number is unverified, but even if there are only three, at what point should WWE decide to put the health of her talent and her team ahead of her television contract?
As things stand, WWE reportedly plans to continue filming, which begins again on Friday. Until last week, WWE hadn’t even been testing people on tapings, relying instead on temperature controls. They also started letting a select group of fans enter the shows. We can only hope that Renee Young and anyone else affected in WWE remains safe and recovers from the disease.
