The COVID-19 pandemic is still a big issue, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel. That doesn’t mean it is impossible to catch the highly contagious virus. Acey Romero recently disclosed that he tested positive for COVID eariler this month.
While speaking on the House of Hardcore podcast, Romero revealed that he tested positive for COVID-19. He was eleven days into his positive diagnosis at the time of his interview. He felt lucky because he only had “three bad days.” Those days included having a fever of 102, body aches, and he had trouble breaking.
Thankfully, Acey Romero seems to be doing much better now, but he’s still nervous to get back to the gum.
“I tested positive about 11 days ago. I feel I’m pretty lucky because I only had three bad days and one really bad day where I felt the grim reaper was coming for me.”
“The extent of things I’m going through is fevers, I haven’t had a fever in like five years. It was like 102, 103 fever. Body aches, trouble breathing. My breathing is not the worst, but not the best. I have a personal trainer and my cardio was really good, but now I walk up a flight of steps and I get blown up. I’m nervous to get back in the gym.”
“Someone told me I’m going through the worst of it, I just have to get through it. I’m in good spirits. Every day since Wednesday, I’m getting better. I can’t taste or smell right now. Hopefully, that comes back and my breathing regulates to be more normal to where it was. Other than that, I consider myself very lucky because I know it could have gotten way worse.“
A vaccine is out there, and people are taking it to help slow the spread. As pro wrestling companies are also planning a return to live touring and having fans back at their events on a regular basis, we can only hope that all the efforts being done to stop this terrible pandemic will have paid off.
Our thoughts are with anyone suffering from a terrible situation due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Luckily, Acey Romero seems to be doing okay through it all.
