NXT Stars “Frustrated” At Full-Time Training Return

Fightful Select have reported that NXT stars have once again begun training full-time at the Performance Center in Florida, a move which has reportedly frustrated the NXT talent.

It has also been reported that those at the Performance Center are only being tested for COVID-19 once a week, being asked to train for the remainder. This is a move away from the previous routine of WWE holding virtual classes for the talent – allowing them to stay away from the PC and decrease the risk of the virus spreading:

Plenty of frustrated names at the WWE Performance Center, which has been tradition of late since the pandemic started. Trainees are back at the Performance Center full-time, training five days a week in the midst of the pandemic. Those that we’ve spoken to at the Performance Center say that they are typically only Covid-19 tested once a week and train the rest of the week. WWE had initially been doing virtual classes, before a few days a week.

The COVID pandemic is still very active in North America, NXT (and WWE alike) are still trying to contain the virus as best they can. Still, however, positive tests are being reported all too often, most recently WWE Champion Drew McIntyre who is currently isolating before his showdown with Goldberg at the 2021 Royal Rumble pay-per-view.
