Carmella clears her name.
On April 11, Fightful reported that a WWE talent had tested positive for COVID-19 and an internal memo went around alerting other talents. Shortly after the report, WWE confirmed the news of the positive test. According to the memo, the talent who tested positive did provide their consent to share their name and status, noting that they're feeling much better. Fightful will not include the name of the talent out of respect and privacy.
Many began speculating that Carmella was the one who tested positive as she and Corey Graves missed the initial run of Performance Center shows. Both returned to work this past Friday on SmackDown.
Carmella took to social media to clear up any rumors or speculation.
I appreciate your concern, but don’t believe everything you read on the internet. Fortunately, I’ve been healthy through all of this. ---- https://t.co/bqNbjTzhJm— Leah Van Dale (@CarmellaWWE) April 12, 2020
On Friday's SmackDown, Carmella & Dana Brooke challenged Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross to a Women's Tag Team Title match.
