WWE host Kayla Braxton has revealed she’s got COVID-19 and says it’s the second time she’s tested positive for the virus.
Braxton tweeted today saying: “Was keeping it quiet but since everyone else is sharing, I feel like it is my responsibility to share this PSA: YOU CAN GET COVID-19 MORE THAN ONCE! I had it back in early March and then thought I was invincible after I recovered. Not true. Dont be dumb like me.”
For those who don’t recall, an unnamed WWE employee tested positive for COVID-19 in March after the WrestleMania tapings. WWE said the person contracted the virus at the end of March, however, so it doesn’t sound like Kayla is saying she was that person.
As we first reported, this week multiple people in WWE have tested positive for COVID – including in-ring talent – causing more testing to be done today at the Performance Center. Renee Young revealed last night that she is one of the people who tested positive as well.
WWE has released a statement saying they will now be testing talent, production crew and employees for COVID-19 prior to every taping for the foreseeable future.
