• Name Of WWE Wrestler Who Raised Concerns Over The Company’s COVID-19 Policy Revealed

WWE wasn’t giving much importance to the threat from COVID-19 until last month, when one of their talents tested positive for the virus. Since then, over 30 employees have tested positive for the virus.

Due to this reason, WWE has conducted over 1500 tests since last month and they’ve also enforced strict policies for everyone. The most strict policy the company introduced was fining employees for not wearing masks.

As we noted earlier, it was reported that an anonymous WWE wrestler raised concerns over the company’s COVID-19 policy in front of Vince McMahon. All the above mentioned policies were enforced after that wrestler went to Vince McMahon.

On the July 9th edition of Les anti-pods de la Lutte (French podcast), Pat Laprade revealed that it was Kevin Owens who raised the concerns in front of McMahon at the July 3rd TV tapings.

Owens reportedly told McMahon that he was uncomfortable over the lack of masks being worn and the lack of social distancing at the tapings. He told the WWE CEO that he was going home.

McMahon asked for Owens’ suggestion and Owens told him to enforce all the policies himself as the whole crew would listen to the boss only.

Laprade went on to describe that McMahon asked if instituting a policy with fines would work. Owens responded that he once swore on SmackDown, was fined, and never did it again – proving it to be an effective policy.

Owens saw that people began wearing masks and keeping their distance, which is why he chose to stay at the Performance Center.
