WWE has just broken the news on their social media accounts that the current WWE Champion, Drew McIntyre, has tested positive for COVID-19. The company has announced that the Scottish Superstar has been placed in quarantine while struck down with the virus.
Drew McIntyre was set to face Randy Orton on tonight's episode of RAW, but the match will now be off the cards. The bout between the pair was set to be a non-title match, and seemingly was going to headline the show on USA Network.
At the time of writing, WWE has not announced any changes to the upcoming edition of Monday Night RAW.

It is currently uncertain whether the recent news concerning Drew McIntyre will have an effect on the building feud.
