Recently, several WWE Superstars were pulled off of television with the public statement being they are not “medically cleared to compete.”
Yesterday, Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet reported that the five members of RETRIBUTION will be off of TV for 2 weeks as a precautionary measure after they came into contact with somebody with COVID-19, it was said that all members tested negative for the virus.
Nikki Cross, Nia Jax, and Shayna Baszler we’re all pulled off of the WWE Clash of Champions pay-per-view. Jax and Shayna have both stated on social media that they are healthy.
According to Dave Meltzer on the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, Nikki Cross went into quarantine before September 25 and will be out for a minimum of two weeks.
On last night’s RAW, Jessika Carr, a SmackDown referee, officiated a few matches on the show. WrestlingInc reports that this is due to two referees from the red brand currently quarantining for precautionary reasons.
Also, last night’s Monday Night RAW did not feature RAW Underground. Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful Select (subscription needed) reported that this is due to WWE working with even more of a skeleton crew than usual and deciding that these segments were not needed for the week and would return when it is more convenient to do so.
WrestleZone will continue to monitor the situation and report any and all updates as they are made available.
