• Real Reason Vince McMahon Enforced COVID-19 Precautions In WWE

Last month, several WWE employees tested positive for COVID-19. The five confirmed names were Renee Young, Kayla Braxton, Adam Pearce, Tyreke and Jamie Noble. The total number of cases reportedly exceeds 30.

Last week, WWE imposed a strict rule regarding talents wearing masks all the time when they’re off camera (or they’ll get fined).

Fightful is reporting that Vince McMahon enforced all the precautions on the request of a specific wrestler.

The wrestler recently approached Vince about properly enforcing COVID-19 precautions at TV tapings.

He/She reportedly expressed concerns to Vince about measures not being taken seriously, specifically social distancing and the wearing of masks.

The report also states that Vince is mainly tucked away in his office during tapings, which explains why these rules were not already enforced. He does occasionally attend tapings from the Gorilla Position.
