• Kevin Owens Refused To Work This Week’s WWE Tapings

A WWE talent was tested positive for Coronavirus earlier this week. WWE carried out mass testing yesterday, and continued with their tapings from today.

However, former Universal Champion Kevin Owens didn’t work this week’s tapings due to the recent COVID-19 case.

Fightful noted the following about it:

“Fightful Select was able to confirm this afternoon that Kevin Owens did not attend today’s WWE RAW tapings. We were told early Wednesday that Owens had communicated to WWE that he wouldn’t be at the next RAW taping after news of the latest COVID-19 test within the company emerged. It was also said that WWE didn’t try to pressure Owens into attending, and there were no issues on the surface with him opting to not participate.

Those that we spoke to in WWE said there was no heat on Owens that they’d heard of, and word was that he expressed his decision respectfully. They’re hoping to have him back by the next set of tapings, but that status is unclear.”

Owens has been involved in a feud with Angel Garza and Andrade on RAW currently.
