McIntyre gives update on WWE Raw, not experiencing COVID symptoms


After testing positive for COVID-19, WWE Champion Drew McIntyre gave an update on his condition on tonight's episode of Raw.

In a video that aired on tonight's Raw, McIntyre said he's fortunate that he isn't experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19. McIntyre urged everyone to wear their masks, practice social distancing, and take COVID-19 seriously.

“I wish I could have been there with you all tonight in the ThunderDome, but unfortunately, as I’m sure you’ve heard already, I’ve tested positive for COVID-19," McIntyre said. "I’m one of the fortunate ones with no symptoms, but I assure you COVID should not be taken lightly. Don’t think you can’t catch it, because you can. If it can happen to me, it can happen to anybody. And the only way we’re going to be able to stop this thing is by working together. So please -- wear your mask, follow social distancing guidelines. It's not just to protect you, it’s to protect everyone and their loved ones. I’ll see you all really, really soon. But until then, stay safe."

WWE announced on Monday afternoon that McIntyre is in quarantine after testing positive for COVID-19. McIntyre vs. Randy Orton in a non-title match had originally been set for tonight's Raw. WWE had also announced that -- after last Monday's Raw ended with Goldberg confronting McIntyre and challenging him to a WWE Championship match at the Royal Rumble -- McIntyre would address Goldberg's challenge on this week's show.

The Royal Rumble is taking place on Sunday, January 31.
