This past week, about 30 WWE employees had reportedly tested positive for the novel coronavirus. As a result, WWE quickly changed their programming schedule, but Vince McMahon has no intention to pause the shows at the moment since he considers the virus to be nothing more than a “bad flu”.

Shortly before WrestleMania 36, Roman Reigns had quietly opted out of the tapings. Soon after, Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens followed in The Big Dog’s footsteps. Now the WWE Universe is speculating what the top Superstars, especially locker room leaders like Seth Rollins would do amidst the alarming COVID-19 situation in WWE.

According to Tom Colohue, Rollins has no intention of opting-out of the television tapings anytime soon despite the fact that his colleagues actually expect him to be the first one to refuse to show up for work for a while.

“A number of wrestlers have voiced their desire to opt-out of the shows, much like Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, and Roman Reigns have done. However, by the sounds of it, they are waiting for someone else to go first.”

“I specifically asked about Seth Rollins — given his status as the locker room leader. And I was told that he is not someone who is looking to opt-out anytime soon. This is despite the large amount of pressure that’s being put on him by other Superstars who want him to be the one to go first.”

Rollins’ partner, Becky Lynch was written off of storylines in May after The Man’s pregnancy was made official on Monday Night RAW. There’s no word on whether Lynch would return to in-ring competition following childbirth.

Rollins is currently engaged in an intense feud with Rey Mysterio and his son Dominick. For what it’s worth, The Monday Night Messiah isn’t willing to skip the tapings “for the greater good!”
