WWE doesn’t like their stars revealing positive COVID-19 rest results. Drew McIntyre was a recent exception to the rule due to his position in the company. Mia Yim also came out to disclose her positive test. A lot of other Superstars who test positive don’t disclose their positive results until later, if they ever do.
It was recently revealed during the Start Today podcast that both Rey Mysterio and his son Dominik dealt with COVID-19 symptoms in December. Rey Mysterio opened up about the experience as he explained how how parents caught COVID-19. A chain reaction followed and both Rey and Dominik Mysterio ended up suffering symptoms of the highly contagious virus.
“It has been so confusing for me and my family, and we’ve tried to really understand how this works because it changes every time. My parents ended up catching COVID and we were taking care of them, making sure they didn’t catch it, but somehow they caught it and brought it to my house, passed it on to my housekeeper, my housekeeper then passed it onto my wife. I was with my wife for maybe three days, I flew out to Tampa to do SmackDown and I found out that Friday morning before I walked into the arena that my housekeeper had tested positive, so I then brought it to [WWE’s] attention.”
“I said I don’t want to be the guy; and Dominik and I both tested negative the night before, and my daughter Aalyah flew in earlier and she tested negative. So, keep in mind that my daughter, Dominik and myself were around my housekeeper and my wife. My wife tested negative, my housekeeper tested positive.”
Mysterio revealed that he discovered the positive test for COVID-19 on December 11th, his birthday. He flew home and he dealt with terrible headaches and migraines for days. Dominik dealt with cold chills and body aches along with a headache.
Thankfully, they were able to make it through this situation. This story certainly clears up why Rey and Dominik Mysterio were missing from television throughout much of December.
