With more info on several people within WWE testing positive for COVID-19, it has been reported that some have been sent home as a precautionary measure.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, T.J. Wilson, a producer who used to wrestle for WWE as Tyson Kidd, arrived at the WWE Performance Center on June 25 with a fever. Despite this, neither he nor his wife Natalya actually tested positive for COVID-19, but were still asked to sit out this weekend. It should be noted that Natalya is reportedly fine.
Producer Adam Pearce, however, was one of the several people who announced that he tested positive for COVID-19. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that there was concern regarding Pearce given that he works closely with Bruce Prichard, who is in his late 50s, as well as Vince McMahon, who is 74 years old.
After it was revealed that Pearce tested positive for COVID-19, he sent out a tweet thanking everyone who reached out to him.
Huge thanks to the many colleagues, mentors, friends, and wrestling fans alike that all reached out. Appreciate it more than me, Mama, and the kiddos could ever articulate. Grateful for you all (except @MojoRawleyWWE). ----— Adam Pearce (@ScrapDaddyAP) June 26, 2020
Lastly, it should be noted Ric Flair was among those who were present on both sets of tapings that took place last week. Flair, who is 71 years old, has had health problems in recent years, but is currently not dealing with any health issues as of this writing.
