• Drew McIntyre Reportedly Has Mild COVID-19 Symptoms, Update On Legends Who Came In Contact With Him
WWE Champion Drew McIntyre tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this week, and appeared in two pre-taped promos on RAW to reveal that he has no COVID-19 symptoms and to accept Goldberg’s challenge for a WWE Championship match at Royal Rumble 2021.
Dave Meltzer reported on the Wrestling Observer Radio that McIntyre is actually facing mild symptoms from the virus. He had been very careful during the pandemic, but unfortunately, he still contracted the virus.
It was further noted that McIntyre probably tested positive for COVID-19 this past Sunday, as WWE holds COVID-19 testing a day before every TV taping.
He came in contact with Hulk Hogan, Jimmy Hart, Goldberg, Sheamus and Keith Lee last week, but the belief is that he wasn’t positive for the virus at that time.
Therefore, the legends don’t seem to be in jeopardy.
