Kushida provides an update on his health
Kushida took to Instagram, and revealed that he and his family tested positive for COVID-19. Here is what he said:
“I hope everyone is okay. Three weeks ago, I was not available for my title match on NXT TV. I tested positive for COVID-19. My family also tested positive. Fortunately, everyone is okay. My wife and I are fully vaccinated, but we still got the virus. Fortunately, the vaccine has given us immunity, but we experienced some symptoms. We have very low energy and I lost my sense of smell and taste. We are recovering. Everyone is feeling better now. The pandemic isn’t over. Please stay safe. I will see you in the ring soon,”he said.
