It has been reported that Vince McMahon is none too pleased with certain staff and talent for not taking proper COVID-19 precautions. Fightful Select reports that the WWE Chairman has been sending several messages “either directly or indirectly” to talent about taking unnecessary risks during the pandemic.
The site notes there was a particular incident in which either a wrestler or a staff member attended an amusement park without wearing masks several weeks back that angered McMahon. He had previously expressed to talent that he wanted them taking more precautions against the virus. McMahon reportedly made an effort to discourage talent from attending Super Bowl parties without masks, and the report notes there have been staffers who had their responsibilities reduced due to circulating photos of them being out in public without masks.
WWE is gearing up to hold WrestleMania 37 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida with fans, and the most recent report suggested that WWE is wanting as many as 45,000 fans in attendance.
