Two top stars in CMLL have tested positive for COVID-19. CMLL revealed that both Bandido and Ultimo Guerrero have tested positive for coronavirus. Bandido is also signed with ROH, but he was unable to make the last set of tapings.
CMLL put out two separate tweets to announce that Bandido and Ultimo Guerrero both tested positive for COVID-19. They will be replaced on the CMLL 87th Anniversary Show.
The two tweets read as follows when translated from Spanish:
The CMLL communicates that after the COVID-19 tests carried out on the cast, the official challenger of the NWA World Historic Welterweight Championship, El Bandido, has tested positive, so he will not be able to participate in the function of the #87AniversarioCMLL
The CMLL communicates that the Último Guerrero, World Trios Champion, has tested positive after the COVID-19 tests performed on the cast.
Ultimo Guerrero was previously set to defend the World Trio Championship with Euforia and Gran Guerrero against Hechicero, El Terrible and Templario. Now Titan will defend the CMLL World Welterweight Championship against Soberano Jr. Bandido’s match against Volador Jr for the NWA World Historic Welterweight Championship, but now Templario will challenge Volador Jr.
The CMLL 87th Anniversary Show is September 25th.
