For at least the second time this month, WWE has altered its taping schedule for shows filmed at the Performance Center in Orlando, Fla., as coronavirus cases continue to rise in the state.
John Pollock of Post Wrestling confirmed on Friday that the promotion had postponed taping for this Monday's "Raw" from Friday to Saturday, while the June 26 edition of "SmackDown" was still being produced live-to-tape as originally intended.
As noted by Post Wrestling , on-air talents Renee Young and Kayla Braxton, along with Adam Pearce and Jamie Noble, all recently tested positive for the coronavirus.
All Elite Wrestling pulled world champion Jon Moxley, Young's husband, from Wednesday's "Dynamite" program as a precaution upon learning of her status. Moxley may remain quarantined through the second week of July.
Meanwhile, Bryan Alvarez of Wrestling Observer/F4W Online reported sources informed him 10 or more WWE personnel tested positive over the past week:
Jon Alba of Spectrum Sports 360 tweeted a similar report on Friday:
I have been told by multiple sources, independently, that the WWE Performance Center COVID-19 outbreak is in the double-digits. Have heard different things on the exact number, but hoping that everyone is ultimately safe now. Tapings continuing today through tomorrow. #WWE— Jon Alba (@JonAlba) June 26, 2020
It's believed WWE is now testing all wrestlers and staff at the Performance Center ahead of each taping.
