A developmental talent, who was last on site at WWE’s training facility on Tuesday, June 9, has tested positive for COVID-19. Since that time, no other individuals that attended the facility have reported symptoms. However, out of an abundance of caution and to ensure the health and safety of the company's performers and staff, all talent, production crew and employees on site at the training and production facilities will be tested for COVID-19 immediately. Following the test results, WWE plans to proceed with its normal television production schedule.

NXT/Performance Center wrestlers have been in the crowd as fans for WWE television shows since the May 25 episode of Raw. Tonight's Raw was the first show to include a small amount of fans in the crowd in addition to the NXT/Performance Center wrestlers.
