Rusev Diagnosed with COVID-19
Former WWE Superstar Rusev confirmed earlier today during a livestream on his official Twitch channel that he’s been diagnosed with COVID-19. Per Fightful, Rusev’s agent also confirmed his diagnosis.
Rusev stated during his Twitch stream: “I’m absolutely, 100 percent, super-mega, incredibly positive. Yes, I got the phone call from the doctor. I got a random call from a number, and I answered. And she’s like, ‘Is this…’ And then she tried to pronounce my name about six times. None of them was successful. But finally, I agreed that this is definitely me that she’s trying to say. And she said, ‘Hey, you are in the contact.’ I’m like, ‘What do you mean? I have my results, and they said that I’m not.’ And she goes, ‘Wait, what?’ I’m like, ‘Yeah, I got the test result.’”
As previously reported, both of the parents for Rusev’s wife, WWE Superstar Lana, recently tested positive for COVID-19 as well. Lana recently released a video saying that her mother is doing better and is out of the ICU. Her father is also reportedly feeling better after he was showing symptoms for a little over two weeks.
