When WWE Champion Drew McIntyre tested positive for COVID-19, fans were certainly shocked. He has been self-quarantining himself since then and is expected to be there for the Royal Rumble event.
While speaking on The Arash Markazi Show, Drew McIntyre talked about testing positive for the virus. McIntyre revealed that after he contracted the virus, his first thoughts were that he was glad they had him tested and caught the virus.
McIntyre added that he took all the necessary measures but still contracted the virus.
“I mean, my first thoughts were honestly, you know, this is why we do the test. You know, throughout the whole pandemic from the beginning, we’ve never stopped running right up until now. WWE has been testing everybody, before you even allowed to enter the building, and I’m so glad that they caught and I never knew I had—I’ve been following the strict safety guidelines. The general was wearing a mask and social distancing, but I’ve taken it to another level where my wife and I don’t leave the house essentially, aside to go to work, and I still managed to catch it.”
McIntyre also added that he was lucky to be asymptomatic. McIntyre also added that he was glad for not infecting other WWE Superstars.
“So, everyone out there, just keep wearing those masks, they’ll get you, so you got to really really try because it is out there—it’s about. So glad we caught it before I was able to pass it to my fellow roster members who might have passed it to somebody in the high-risk category. So I’m just very, very happy that WWE has been testing as much as they have. And I’m very fortunate to be asymptomatic.”
McIntyre is scheduled to appear on next week’s episode of Monday Night RAW to have a face-to-face with Goldberg.
