• 2 More WWE Names Who Tested Positive For COVID-19 Revealed
As we noted last night, WWE interviewer Renee Young revealed on Twitter that she tested positive for COVID-19.
You can add WWE interviewer Kayla Braxton and WWE Producer Adam Pearce on that list, as they have been tested positive for COVID-19 as well.
Kayla noted that this is the second time she has been tested positive.
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.
