WWE has just been hit with its third reported COVID-19 breakout since the onset of the global health crisis in March, with the Wrestling Observer/Figure Four Online’s Dave Meltzer writing that it occurred on Friday 23 October.

People who were at the Performance Center on this date have been told to enter a two-week quarantine period regardless of whether they tested positive or negative. Meltzer adds that the situation may lead to significant changes to this week’s NXT Halloween Havoc card, as reports indicate several people involved with that show have been impacted, though a source has indicated that no NXT TV regulars have tested positive.

Further details are scarce, though around 100 fans are still scheduled to attend Havoc, which goes down inside the rebranded Performance Center (Capitol Wrestling Center). This is dependent on them passing COVID-19 tests on Tuesday evening, per standard protocol.

Fightful Select have also reported on the situation, stating WWE had held an in-house live event at the PC on Friday.

WWE’s last COVID-19 outbreak happened in October, forcing a number of changes to the main roster’s Clash of Champions pay-per-view card as scheduled performers had come into contact with people who’d tested positive.
