• An Anonymous WWE Wrestler Thinks Coronavirus Is A ‘Big Work’
As we noted earlier, a WWE talent tested positive for Coronavirus earlier this week. Most of the WWE wrestlers reportedly found out this news through social media.
Many wrestlers are concerned about the whole situation, and some even want to take time off like Roman Reigns and Sami Zayn.
PWInsider noted that everyone is worried about the situation, but one wrestler thinks it’s a big work.
“For almost every person that we’ve spoken with today (with the exception of one talent who stated the pandemic was just a ‘big work’), there has been concern at some level about their health and for those with families, that concern was even greater, as there was worry about whether they could bring something back home that they could expose their families to as well.
As one person stated, this is exactly why Roman Reigns has stepped away. Health has obviously been an unspoken concern since the pandemic started, but having been tested today, for many, it is now back at the forefront of their thoughts in a way it hadn’t been previously.
I want to stress that there have been some we’ve spoken to who have shrugged at the entire scenario over the last 24 hours, feeling it’s overblown, especially the one person who, as noted, feels the pandemic is a ‘work’.”
