Renee Young tests positive for coronavirus


WWE personality Renee Young has tested positive for coronavirus and her husband Jon Moxley was subsequently taken off Dynamite as well last night as a precautionary measure.

“Man. What a few days. My show gets cancelled and I get Covid. Wear your masks and wash your hands. Stay safe, everyone,” Young wrote in a small message on social media.

The popular host was at the WWE Performance Center last week and was part of the segment featuring the celebration for AJ Styles’ Intercontinental title win.

In response to the outbreak, WWE has promised to continue doing COVID-19 tests for all the individuals involved in television tapings moving forward.

“WWE will continue COVID-19 testing of its talent, production crew and employees in advance of TV productions for the foreseeable future,” a statement from WWE read.

The company held its first testing last week after one developmental talent who was in the crowd during an NXT taping tested positive. Prior to that, WWE never did swab testing for its personnel and only took temperatures before talent came in to the PC.
