The coronavirus pandemic is still spreading and several names from the pro wrestling world have disclosed their positive tests. Bandido and Ultimo Guerrero both recently tested positive for COVID-19 while in Mexico.
The LA Times ran an article last Wednesday, September 18th about Lucha Libre stars who are now forced to sell street food. This article contained images of Ultimo Guerrero working in the food service industry.
The article started out with a simple introduction of Ultimo Guerrero and how the COVID-19 pandemic forced him to find ways to make money outside of the ring.
Último Guerrero is one of the biggest names in Mexican wrestling — a world-famous star known for his punishing moves, long black mullet and silver-capped front tooth.
He has toured Asia, South America and Europe, won dozens of championship belts and can’t walk down the street here without fans pestering himfor autographs.
But in the months since the coronavirus struck and wrestling arenas were closed, the 48-year-old icon has been flipping burgers at a food truck.
Guerrero just tested positive for COVID-19 along with Bandido. Both of them needed to be taken off the big CMLL Anniversary Show. Ultimo Guerrero was shown in the article serving food with no mask covering his nose.
This is a startling reminder about the importance of protecting yourself. Not only did Ultimo Guerrero run the chance of spreading coronavirus, but he could have also picked up the highly contagious disease from the customers he served.
