It was reported by Fightful Select that multiple people in NXT tested positive for COVID-19 the week of September 9 that caused “significant changes” to programming plans.
This was discussed on today’s episode of Wrestling Observer Radio. The number is not as high as WWE’s biggest outbreak (38), but it’s not a small number of infected wrestlers either.
The belief is that one of the coaches at the Performance Center got COVID, and this resulted in the outbreak.
The changes also included plans for future episodes as well as Wednesday’s show. Danny Burch and Roderick Strong vs. Fabian Aichner and Raul Mendoza was supposed to set up a match between The Undisputed Era (Strong and Fish) and Burch and Oney Lorcan.
Fish was not on the show, but it has not been confirmed that he tested positive. Also absent were announcers Vic Joseph and Wade Barrett.
