Backstage News On Multiple WWE Wrestlers Missing Raw This Week

-- On today's Wrestling Observer Radio, one of the discussions centered around several superstars missing from yesterday's WWE Monday Night Raw. Rey Mysterio, Natalya, Liv Morgan, Austin Theory and Randy Orton were some prominent names who were not there live and there were reasons: Mysterio and son, Dominik were scheduled to be at the tapings, but ultimately shot their segment from home while Morgan was away on a boating trip with Sonya Deville, Mandy Rose and Rose's mother. Natalya was asked to not attend the tapings after her husband Tyson Kidd reported a fever (though he tested negative for COVID-19).

-- There is no word on why Austin Theory and Randy Orton and whether it had anything to do with their health status or if they were simply not needed (or it's even possible that they chose not to appear given all the positive tests popping up). A per our sources, Kevin Owens meanwhile decided against attending once again though originally he had planned to be there, however, with the COVID-19 situation, he told officials he would be staying away.
