It’s becoming more and more common. The Coronavirus has shaken up the wrestling world on more than one occasion. That has been the case for well over a year now and while some things have gotten better, we are still a long way off from things being the way they were before the pandemic started. You still see wrestlers testing positive for the virus and that is the case again.
In a new video posted to his Instagram, NXT Cruiserweight Champion Kushida revealed that he tested positive for the Coronavirus three weeks ago, with his family testing positive as well. While his family has been vaccinated, they have also experienced some symptoms, including low energy. The diagnosis caused Kushida to be pulled from his scheduled title defense against Roderick Strong. Kushida said that he would be back in the ring soon but did not give a specific date.
It could be worse. Check out Kushida’s announcement plus what he can do in the ring when he is healthy:
Opinion: This is probably what a lot of people assumed had happened and it probably isn’t the biggest surprise. Anytime someone is out of action for any length of time these days, there is a good chance it is due to the virus. What matters here is that Kushida seems to be doing better than he could be and should be back soon. Hopefully it is sooner rather than later as he really is that good at what he does.
What do you think of Kushida? What should he do when he gets back in the ring? Let us know in the comments below.
