We are still in the midst of a pandemic and now Tommy Dreamer is fighting his own battle against COVID-19. He has been going through this for three weeks or longer now.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that the 50-year-old innovator of violence missed the Impact Wrestling television tapings because he is dealing with COVID-19. He started getting sick while doing a tour of Alaska with Wrestle Pro.
Dreamer described his battle as saying that for 17 days he felt like he had a massive concussion, was suffering from chills and heavy sweating. He said one night he felt so bad he couldn’t walk or go the bathroom and said his hips and elbows felt like they were on fire and in so much pain he couldn’t use his arms. He said at other points laying in bed was so painful that he had to stand up against the wall. He said at times he felt like he was going to die, noted he had blood clots due to pain in his legs and fears the disease would cause him long-term health problems
Dreamer said that “more than a dozen” wrestlers on tour ended up getting sick despite them all testing negative prior to starting the tour. He also expressed anger about his wife and daughters catching it from him when he returned home.
During Impact Wrestling’s Rebellion pay-per-view, Matt Striker sent out his best to Tommy Dreamer and his wife Beulah McGillicutty. That is the reason why, because they are currently fighting to get over COVID-19. We’re sending out our best and hoping for their rapid recovery.
