In what seems to be like a first, a viral infection has spread around the WWE locker room, putting three WWE Superstars on the sidelines, two of whom will be missing out important TLC matches.
Bo Dallas has been out for weeks and is thought to have viral meningitis. His brother Bray Wyatt and his girlfriend JoJo were also pulled. While JoJo’s mother confirmed on Twitter that her daughter is not sick, Wyatt is the second one to have been infected.
Roman Reigns was also taken off the show after he was diagnosed with an undisclosed viral infection, although it could be the same one as the brothers. Unlike Bo Dallas and Bray Wyatt, Reigns has been appearing weekly on television and this week wrestled Braun Strowman in a steel cage match.
“We have confirmed that three of our performers have been diagnosed with a viral infection,” a WWE representative told ESPN. “As a precautionary measure, we are ensuring in-ring performers and staff are tested and immunized in accordance with recommended medical guidelines.”
Considering that most of the Superstars eat and share the same locker room, this could turn into a major disaster for the company if more are found to be infected.
It’s not clear how and where Bo Dallas became ill and it looks like he was the first one to get the virus.
