Over the last year, WWE has ramped up their COVID-19 protocols in large part thanks to WWE Superstars themselves asking for increased measures. It appears that not all superstars are taking the pandemic serious anymore, as Vince McMahon was reportedly very upset recently over superstars easing up on following protocols.
Fightful Select is reporting that Vince was ‘livid’ recently when he found out that a certain talent attended an amusement park unmasked weeks back, an incident that occurred after the chairman had already spoken to talent about them needing to take this pandemic more serious as they approached WrestleMania.
The report states that he sent numerous messages to superstars as a result of this particular incident, which was right around the time of the Super Bowl. McMahon did not want wrestlers attending parties without masks.
For those that chose to press their luck with McMahon, certain staff members have had responsibilities reduced due to photos of them without masking emerging, a clear sign that WWE is indeed taking all of these precautions extremely seriously.
