Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that the former WCW/AAA wrestler had been very cautious because of his weakened immune system regarding COVID-19. In 2007, he had a kidney transplant, which resulted in him having major side effects from anti-rejection drugs.
The good news is that he’s out of the hospital as he was discharged on Thursday and told Meltzer that he was feeling better now but had a bad previous week. “Was very sick last week was bedridden for three days, I got Covid went to hospital and my kidneys were failing.”
Besides his family, he’s been in no contact with anyone aside from the Mysterio family as Dominik is his godson.
