That’s not good to hear. It is rare that you go a day anymore without seeing something negative happening in wrestling. The Coronavirus is near the top of that list at the moment and part of the problem is how fast it can spread. In short, if one person gets it, anyone around them is likely going to get it as well. That can cause chaos in wrestling in a hurry and that might be the case again.
We are less than two weeks away from AEW’s Fyter Fest and that means things are going to get interesting in a hurry. With the show being such a big deal it is clear that AEW is going all out to make it into a special two night event. The show will be headlined by Jon Moxley defending the AEW World Title against Jake Hager, but something might get in the way of those plans.
Wednesday night, Renee Young announced via Twitter that she has tested positive for the Coronavirus at some point in the last few days. Young is married to Moxley, though it is not clear if they have been in contact since her diagnosis. Moxley was pulled from this week’s Dynamite due to coming in contact with someone who had been in contact with someone who had the virus. It is not clear what AEW will do if Moxley is unable to wrestle.
Man. What a few days. My show gets cancelled and I get Covid. Wear your masks and wash your hands. Stay safe, everyone ??

That isn’t good to hear. Check out what Young can do when she is healthy:
Opinion: Egads that’s horrible to hear. Young really has had a rough week and this isn’t going to make it any better. With luck she can bounce back after a short time away, and hopefully that includes some more television appearances. She is way too talented to be left off of television and WWE would be smart to run with that as soon as they can have the chance.
What do you think of Young? Where will she wind up in WWE? Let us know in the comments below.
