News on Names That Were Absent From Last Set of WWE TV Tapings

-- The Observer names The Street Profits, A.J. Styles, Austin Theory, Daniel Bryan, Finn Balor, Kevin Owens, Liv Morgan, Mandy Rose, Randy Orton, Natalya, Nia Jax, Otis, Tucker, Mojo Rawley, Shorty G, Raquel Gonzalez, Rey Mysterio, Dominick, Sheamus, Shorty G and Sonya Deville as names who have been on television lately but were not at the recent set of tapings after WWE’s COVID-19 outbreak. Some of these names tested positive, some were held off for precautionary reasons, some of them asked for time off as not to risk their families while others were not even booked to appear.

-- Styles and Bryan were both in the ring with Renee Young the week before and she tested positive for COVID-19, but Drew Gulak was also in that segment and was on Smackdown last week. For any tag team, if one member tests positive, it makes sense to keep the other off the tapings as well. Natalya and Tyson Kidd were asked to stay away for precautionary reasons after Kidd had a fever, while Liv Morgan, Sonya Deville and Lana were on a boating trip days before the testing, though Lana was on TV. Mojo Rawley and Shorty G had their match last week produced by Jamie Noble, who later tested positive. Others like Kevin Owens decided to skip the tapings altogether and hasn't been there for the last several weeks due to the increased risks.
