A few WWE Superstars have decided to stay at home during the coronavirus pandemic. Roman Reigns, Sami Zayn, Kevin Owens, all had their separate reasons for skipping the tapings, and now, another wrestler has joined that list.
On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer reported that Riddick Moss hasn’t been working the WWE tapings due to the COVID-19 situation.
The former 24/7 Champion hasn’t been around since WWE moved to the Performance Center as their primary location of operation.
“Riddick Moss who is still with the company, but he’s disappeared. It’s a COVID related thing as far as I know — not that he has it. He’s one of the guys like Sami Zayn who made the call that he’s not gonna work right now.”
Several WWE employees including Renee Young, Kayla Braxton, Jamie Nobel, and Adam Pearce have tested positive for the novel coronavirus. No Superstar has revealed a positive test just yet.
It remains to be seen when Moss is able to return to WWE TV. On March 22, the former NXT star lost the title to R-Truth while out for a jog, ending his maiden 24/7 Title reign at 41 days. As reported earlier, WWE could likely freeze Riddick’s contract for opting out of the tapings.
