WWE Comments on Reports Regarding Friends and Family at TV Tapings

They also denied that any fans were present and said the people in the audience were friends and family of talent and had cleared medical screenings.

Last night, WWE announced a developmental talent who was at last week's tapings had tested positive for COVID-19.

Dean Muhtadi, who goes by Mojo Rawley in WWE, tweeted about his own COVID-19 test on Tuesday morning.

Since WWE's training facility is located in Florida, they've been able to continue producing television programs during the widespread shutdown driven by the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, WWE has released more information on their inclusion.

The conflicting reports continued this afternoon on Wrestling Observer Live. In addition, it was reported by F4WOnline.com's Bryan Alvarez that WWE refused to allow the audience members, which included non-contracted talent, to wear face masks during the taping. It was previously reported on Wrestling Observer Radio that fans were told to go home if they wanted to wear a mask. As a result, WWE canceled its Tuesday television tapings and will test all talent and on-site employees for COVID-19. We also first noted that fans had their temperatures taken, and had to fill out a questionnaire. That individual did not have contact with any other WWE employee, according to that WWE statement.

Last night's edition of Raw featured a select number of friends and family who were permitted into the tapings.

All of WWE's pay-per-views and flagship shows - Raw, SmackDown and NXT - have been held at the Performance Center since mid-March. "Attendance was below 20% capacity and social distancing guidelines were adhered to with at least six feet between parties, thus face masks were not required".
