It’s hardly a secret that a number of WWE stars have been less than please with the way the company has dealt with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
According to a new report from Fightful Select (subscribe), a number of WWE trainees have been in contact to express their anger and frustration with the way their training schedules have been treated over the past year.
The report reads:
“Plenty of frustrated names at the WWE Performance Center, which has been tradition of late since the pandemic started. Trainees are back at the Performance Center full-time, training five days a week in the midst of the pandemic. Those that we’ve spoken to at the Performance Center say that they are typically only COVID-19 tested once a week, and train the rest of the week. WWE had initially been doing virtual classes, before a few days a week.”
NXT has been the site of more than one COVID-19 outbreak, so it’s hardly surprising that trainees are worried that they too could catch the virus if this schedule continues.
Despite over 3,000 people dying from the virus every day in the USA, WWE is still planning on having 30,000 fans in attendance on both nights of WrestleMania 37.
