Current WWE Backstage Atmosphere Described as “an Asylum”

WWE has been hit with its first real setback as part of the current pandemic since an employee has tested positive for the virus, which means that all other employees have had to be tested.

This has meant that tapings that were scheduled to take place today have been postponed and WWE stars are not allowed to compete unless they have a COVID-19 test that is negative, something that has taken a lot longer to make a reality.

Ringsidenews reported that the likes of Bruce Prichard, Dave Kapoor, Ed Koskey, Ryan Ward, and Jon Baeckstrom were the men in charge backstage and that the situation was described to them as “watching the inmates run the asylum.”

Today saw WWE prepared to tape a number of Raw, SmackDown, 205 Live, and NXT shows, but these were postponed since WWE had to enforce the rule that stars couldn’t compete unless they had been tested and their results had come back negative.

This meant that many stars were stuck waiting around for hours since their results hadn’t come back so they weren’t allowed in the building.

Reports now suggest that WWE could be forced to present NXT as a live episode tonight on the USA Network.
