WWE has implemented quite a few safety measures to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic. Last week, around 30 employees tested positive for the novel coronavirus but in spite of that, the Performance Center crew wasn’t taking necessary precautions until Vince McMahon intervened.
According to Fightful Select, a RAW Superstar returned to the tapings last week “after a hiatus” and was shocked by what he saw.
The concerned Superstar immediately voiced his concerns to Mr. McMahon regarding the safety measures that were in place. The people at the Performance Center were neither wearing masks nor practicing social distancing.
“We’ve heard that the wrestler expressed his concerns about proper measures not being taken seriously enough, such as mask utilization and social distancing. This led to McMahon adding the rule that masks are mandatory and failure to comply will result in a fine.”
The Chairman Of Board then made it mandatory for everyone to wear masks at the tapings with a fine being imposed on those who fail to abide by the rule.
It was also reported that Mr. McMahon keeps himself “stowed away in an office” during the tapings but he hits the Gorilla Position from time to time.
It will be interesting to see what other rule Mr. McMahon needs to enforce in the coming days.
