WWE announced this afternoon that McIntyre has tested positive for the coronavirus, and has been placed in quarantine.
“Drew McIntyre has tested positive for COVID-19 and has been placed in quarantine,” the WWE website announcement said.
This is the first time that WWE has publicly announced a positive COVID-19 test. No other details were provided.
McIntyre was scheduled to face Randy Orton in a non-title match on tonight’s RAW. He’s also set to face WWE Hall of Famer Bill Goldberg at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view on January 31.
@Wrestlevotes reports that WWE is planning on keeping Orton in tonight’s main event. They are currently working on finding a suitable replacement for Orton, but there’s no word yet on who that will be.
WWE is looking to replace McIntyre with another top talent to go up against Orton as tonight’s RAW will have major competition from the 2021 College Football Playoff National Championship game between Alabama and Ohio State.
Stay tuned for more.
