WWE Champion Drew McIntyre has been diagnosed with COVID-19 and is now in quarantine. He was originally scheduled to face Randy Orton tonight in the main event of Monday Night RAW, but that is obviously off the table. Instead, Randy Orton will face Triple H.
Drew sent a video to WWE talking about his prognosis, encouraging the WWE Universe to continue wearing their face masks, practice social distancing and follow CDC guidelines. He said,
“How are you, WWE Universe? I wish that I could be with you tonight in the ThunderDome but unfortunately, as I’m sure you’ve heard already, I tested positive for COVID-19. Now, I’m one of the fortunate ones with no symptoms. But I assure you, COVID should not be taken lightly. Don’t think you can’t catch it, because you can. If it can happen to me, it can happen to anybody, and the only way we’re gonna be able to stop this thing is by working together. So please, wear your mask, follow social distancing guidelines. It’s not just to protect you. It’s to protect everyone and their loved ones. I’ll see you all really, really soon. But until then, stay safe.”
