Kevin Nash slams criticism of WWE’s Covid-19 Testing protocols. The company have been accused of not doing an adequate job.
While the rest of the country shut down, the WWE never did. Several sports leagues across the country and around the world were either suspended or called off. The WWE however, continued to operate in front of an empty crowd, even if it made for an awkward viewing initially.

To make matters worse, the promotion refused to mention the Covid-19 pandemic on television. It seemed as if they were in denial about what was happening around them. Add the frequent return of older performers to the mix and it begins to make sense why the company has received criticism from several quarters.
Kevin Nash slams criticism of WWE’s Covid-19 Testing protocols
Former WWE star, Kevin Nash, has taken note of some of the criticism. He defended the promotion he once tried so hard to put out of business with some revelations.
“Saw this in a Google feed,” he wrote referencing an article about the WWE bringing in Ric Flair as a full time performer during the pandemic. “The story says the @WWE doesn’t do a adequate job Covid testing. Complete bullsh*t. Everytime 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.”

Nash has no reason to big the WWE up. He is always among the first to find issues with the manner in which the promotion deals with its performers. It is nice to hear from the former WWE champion that the company is taking the pandemic seriously.
They also recently had their WWE Champion Drew McIntyre advocate the need to practice precautionary measures. They announced that McIntyre had contracted the disease and used it to drill into the fans the urgency of masks and social distancing.

Still, it is understandable why fans would have issues with the WWE bringing in 60+ performers. Especially for short cameos that make no difference to the quality of the show. They are after all among the most vulnerable age group to lose their life to the disease.
