Backstage WWE News: RAW Taping Notes, Update On Kevin Owens Refusing To Work Show

Kevin Owens missed this week’s WWE television taping due to deciding against working the show when discovering that a developmental talent that recently sat at ringside tested positive for the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

As noted, Owens opted against working the taping for Monday Night RAW as a result of a positive COVID-19 test among the developmental talents that sat around at ringside.

Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that the grandfather of Owens’ wife recently passed away due to COVID-19 and that development played a factor in him opting to skip the taping.

Owens is expected back the week after next when WWE is scheduled to tape two additional episodes of Monday Night RAW.

The taping that Owens missed this week was for this coming Monday night’s show.
