At Extreme Rules: The Horror Show next month, WWE Champion Drew McIntyre is going to defend his title against his former tag team partner and stablemate Dolph Ziggler.
This week on Raw, Ziggler teamed with Sasha Banks in a tag team match to take on and subsequently defeat Asuka and the aforementioned McIntyre.
Speaking of Ziggler, the former World Heavyweight Champion recently spoke to Sports Illustrated about a variety of topics, including WWE’s COVID-19 protocols:
While WWE has come under fire from fans and portions of the media for their handling of the pandemic, Ziggler has stated that WWE is being “really cautious with everything”.
“You will absolutely see me on Raw. We’ve been really cautious with everything, really washing down the ring and keeping everyone isolated. When we go to work, we’re tested. If we get a negative test, then we go to work. Even several months ago, when we weren’t exactly sure what we were being told to do by the CDC on a day-to-day basis, I just wanted to play it safe so I’ve been wearing a mask wherever I can. That’s in the gym, walking into a CVS, even during my walks outside—it’s making me work on my breath a little better.”
Thankfully, WWE has seemingly made mask-wearing mandatory for everyone in the crowd at the Performance Center, which is a step in the right direction following a reported ‘COVID-19 outbreak at the PC last week.
