The trend of WWE stars deciding against working TV tapings while the world deals with the coronavirus continue.

Owens’ decision came just two days after it was revealed that a WWE developmental talent had tested positive for COVID-19 after working last Tuesday’s TV taping.

The word going around backstage is that Owens expressed his decision respectfully and he was not pressured to participate once he spoke up.

WWE is hoping to have Owens back by the next set of tapings. However, his status is unclear at this point. 

Roman Reigns was the first star to decide against working the tapings and followed by Sami Zayn, who was eventually stripped of the Intercontinental Title.
