WWE Champion Drew McIntyre has tested positive for COVID-19.

"Drew McIntyre has tested positive for COVID-19 and has been placed in quarantine," WWE announced on Monday afternoon. "Check back to WWE.com for more updates as they become available."

McIntyre had been set to face Randy Orton in a non-title match on tonight's episode of Raw. WWE had also hyped that McIntyre would address the challenge that was issued to him by Goldberg on last week's Legends Night edition of Raw. The main event segment of last week's Raw saw Goldberg make his return to WWE television and challenge McIntyre to a WWE Championship match at the Royal Rumble.

After McIntyre retained the WWE Championship against Keith Lee last week, Goldberg confronted McIntyre and challenged him to a title match at the Royal Rumble. The episode ended with Goldberg shoving McIntyre down to the ground.

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

This is the first time that WWE has publicly announced that a member of their roster has tested positive for COVID-19.

On the post-Raw edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer reported that at least four WWE wrestlers have COVID-19 or are recovering from it.

That number includes Drew McIntyre, one "big star" who just returned from having it, one wrestler on SmackDown who was scheduled for last Friday and then was taken off the show, and one NXT wrestler.

Meltzer speculated that others will likely be kept away from TV due to contact tracing. He didn't know anyone else on Raw that had it, but noted there was obviously a skeleton crew on Raw last night which necessitated the return of Triple H. He said that he wasn't sure if Kofi Kingston does have a broken jaw as was announced on the show.

Meltzer said McIntyre tested positive on Sunday as part of WWE's precheck measures before TV and that he is experiencing mild symptoms. The belief it that he didn't it have it last Monday during the Legends edition of Raw in which Goldberg challenged him to a match for the Royal Rumble.
