WWE Reportedly Had Another COVID-19 Outbreak at Performance Center
WWE reportedly had another coronavirus outbreak at the Performance Center earlier this month, according to PWInsider.
Mike Johnson reported that the reason why WWE delayed their second set of television tapings for SmackDown and 205 Live on August 4th was due to more people at the Performance Center testing positive for the coronavirus.
It’s currently not known how many people tested positive but the decision to postpone the tapings was done at the last minute as more tests were coming back showing positive results.
WWE later rescheduled their postponed tapings to August 13th.
