The COVID-19 pandemic has proven to be the bane of WWE programming. This time around, WWE may need to alter their planned event owing to the sudden circumstantial crisis.
The Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer reports that “there was another COVID-19 breakout of sorts at the WWE Performance Center.”
The outbreak reportedly took place this past Friday. People who were present at the Performance Center have been asked to quarantine for two weeks. WWE sent down this word after conducting contact tracing.
The report further suggests that some talents scheduled for NXT Halloween Havoc have been affected. This leaves WWE with no choice but to alter some parts of the October 28th show.
“There have been reports that it includes people scheduled for NXT’s Halloween Havoc show Wednesday and that aspects of the show are going to have to be changed.”
A WWE source further claimed that no NXT television regular has tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
According to Jon Alba, the status of the Halloween Havoc card is in question owing to the recent COVID-19 outbreak.
There are five matches on the official Halloween Havoc card with two bouts featuring the exciting “Spin The Wheel, Make The Deal” stipulation.
