Kevin Nash Defends WWE’s COVID-19 Protocols

Kevin-Nash

Former WWE Superstar Kevin Nash recently took to Twitter to defend criticism of WWE’s COVID-19 testing is “bulls**t” having tested positive himself.

Taking to Twitter to respond to an article he saw claiming that WWE are trying to kill Ric Flair, Kevin Nash backfired with his own take on WWE protocols during the Covid pandemic.

Saw this in a Google feed. The story says the @WWE doesn’t do a adequate job Covid testing. Complete bullshit. Every time I’m involved I’ve been quarantined in a hotel room after being tested then brought to the arena. I was positive and sent directly to my home to quarantine.

One Twitter user was quick to challenge Nash’s comments, asking why the infection rates in WWE were so high in comparison to those in AEW who also have live audiences at shows. Nash responded quite simply with “A tenth of the personal” suggesting that WWE will have more infections naturally due to the sheer size of the operation compared to that of AEW.

This latest comment only further drives the scrutiny and focus of the WWE’s handling of the Covid outbreaks. Only recently we’ve heard reports that talent are now back to their full training schedules on site whilst testing is now only twice per week.

In August 2020, The Rock took to Twitter to confirm reports that he himself had been infected with Covid-19. A message which Kevin Nash responded & also confirmed his positive result in the process.

Welcome to the team. Very sorry you’re family is infected. I was tired for a while didn’t train for the 4th day. My wife still hasn’t got smell or tastes back. Son was asymptomatic. Pray you heal up quickly. Thank you for making people realize it’s real

The Rock responded to Nash’s heartfelt message, saying “Sorry to hear that brother. Not a team we want to be on for sure. You guys stay strong too (still haven’t got my tastes back either)“.

Kevin Nash is the lead star in an upcoming Micah Lyons film called ‘COVID-19: Invasion‘, currently in post production. The movie synopsis we have so far is quite small, reading only “Chinese bats invade America. It’s up to Navy Seal Team Six to stop them.”.
