Apparently many major brands are affected by a COVID outbreak. Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful is reporting that the outbreak affects Raw, SmackDown, Impact and AEW (h/t CagesideSeats). No news has come forward as to who are the positives from the other companies, but statements may come sooner rather than later. AEW & Impact have pre-taped their shows for this week, so those should go on as scheduled.
We’ll add any COVID outbreak updates here, so keep posted for updates.
