Renee Young recently revealed that she has tested positive for COVID-19 and now other names from WWE have revealed they have tested positive as well.
Backstage interviewer Kayla Braxton recently revealed she has tested positive for a second time. Braxton revealed she first had COVID-19 in March, and now has it again. You can view her statement below.
Was keeping it quiet but since everyone else is sharing, I feel like it is my responsibility to share this PSA: YOU CAN GET COVID-19 MORE THAN ONCE! I had it back in early March and then thought I was invincible after I recovered. Not true. Dont be dumb like me.
WWE producer Adam Pearce was another name to reveal that he has tested positive for COVID-19. You can view his announcement of the positive test in the tweet below.

PWInsider reported that the Pearce and Braxton results came from the new round of COVID-19 testing done by WWE on Monday. The company requested staff and personalities take the tests after a positive test was discovered. The new infections are not a result of the tests done last Tuesday at the WWE Performance Center, which were held after the developmental trainee recently tested positive. It has been reported that the positive tests in WWE could be in the two dozen range but that has yet to be confirmed at this time.
UPDATE: Jamie Noble has also tested positive for COVID-19 on 6/26.
UPDATE #2: Nattie & Tyson Kidd were both sent home as a precautionary measure.
UPDATE #3: Former WWE worker, Rusev (now Miro) announced on his Twitch stream that he has tested positive for COVID-19. Lana’s parents are currently both in the hospital battling COVID-19 as well.
S.A.M.’s Spiel: Well this is a whole sack of suck if I ever saw it. This is Kayla’s second bout with COVID-19 and just goes to show people can get this illness twice. It also sucks for Pearce to get this as well and we will keep an eye on any new cases that may pop up given the rumors of the number of positive tests. WWE, and AEW, both need to take this as serious as possible to ensure the safety of their workers and everybody they can come into contact with because COVID-19 is not going away any time soon no matter what politicians, especially the head one in charge, say about it.
