They're just saying an employee, though not an in-ring performer.

"WWE doctors spoke with [redacted] this morning and reported (they) last had contact with anyone at WWE on March 26 at the Performance Center. As you know, [redacted] is not an in-ring performer and we believe this matter is low-risk to you."

Sounds like maybe someone on the broadcast team.

If it wasn’t for the web address, I would have believed that video was filmed in the 80s for the NWA.

Don't know why I'm posting this here as it's definitely not related to wrestling but Linda Macmahon has given $18million to Florida. Wonder why.

It absolutely is related to wrestling when the State of Florida done a u-turn on deeming WWE an essential business on the same day as receiving that payment. :lol:

One of the things I've been really enjoying during Lockdown is Wrestling Observer. The team are putting so much stuff up just now and obviously have plenty to talk about.

If you don't feel like parting with any cash just now (who can blame you), Wrestling Observer Live is now on youtube and twitch every night at 8pm. Their Youtube channel also has a lot of clips from their premium shows.

https://www.pwinsider.com/ViewArticle.php?id=135611 sounds like Vince is planning to cut back across the board so releases are potentially going to happen soon

Watching these Broken Skull Sessions with Austin and the ones I’ve seen are brilliant. Kane and Big Show come across like great guys and Undertaker seems like he really knows the business. Austin clearly knows the guys, knows the stories and knows the business too, I haven’t listened to his podcast but he’s been really good.

Looking forward to seeing him talk with some of the older guys - Hart and Flair - who have a bit of WCW experience.

Surprised by Gallows and Anderson. I guess in storyline AJ Styles when he returns will blame them for Undertaker burying him.

A few of them will turn up in AEW in May, I’m sure.

Referee Mike Chioda gone too. :o

He’s been there forever.

As Gorilla Monsoon liked to say, Dark times in the World Wrestling Federation.

Wwe updated with Rowan, primo and epico gone too. This is still ongoing by the looks of it. Also they're all getting told by text. Even with the virus they still could have done this face to face or on a call. They got the bad PR from the bribe so might as well dump it all out now so they can try to recover in one swoop.

I am surprised by some of these releases. I would imagine some of it is down to who's contracts were up soon so that it was cheaper to release them.
