Report: WWE postpones 'Raw' taping amid coronavirus outbreak

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: 

It's believed WWE is now testing all wrestlers and staff at the Performance Center ahead of each taping.

Zac Wassink is a football and futbol aficionado who is a PFWA member and is probably yelling about Tottenham Hotspur at the moment. Erik Lamela and Eli Manning apologist. Chanted for Matt Harvey to start the ninth inning of Game 5 of the 2015 World Series at Citi Field. Whoops. You can find him on Twitter at @ZacWassink
