It can happen to anyone. The Coronavirus pandemic has changed the wrestling world and while things have come a long way, there is still the chance that things could go badly at any point. Anyone can come down with the virus at almost anytime and that certainly includes wrestlers. Unfortunately that seems to be the case for another prominent AEW star.
The Enjoy Wrestling promotion has announced that former AEW Women’s Champion Nyla Rose has tested positive for the Coronavirus and will not be able to appear at their Striking Distance event this weekend. It is not clear when Rose will be able to return to the ring or AEW television. Rose did not appear on this week’s show and has yet to comment on the situation.
Rose has been part of the AEW roster since the company’s founding and was the second holder of the AEW World Women’s Championship, defeating inaugural champion Riho for the title. Since then, Rose has feuded with a variety of wrestlers, including making a run to the semifinals of the TBS Title tournament, where she was defeated by Ruby Soho. There is no word on what she will be doing when she gets back to AEW television.
Welp, we have some bad news.
Nyla Rose has contracted COVID and will not be able to participate in Striking Distance this Saturday.
This is obviously upsetting, but what can you do? Shit happens.
We wish @NylaRoseBeast a speedy recovery and are working to find a replacement.

Opinion: This is the kind of thing that you are going to see happen these days and what matters the most is someone being healthy. What matters most is Rose making a full recovery and then returning to the ring. Hopefully nothing is seriously wrong long term, but things are still a bit uncertain with everything going on. Rose is quite the force in AEW and it will be nice to have her back.
What do you think of Rose? What should she do when she gets back? Let us know in the comments below.
