Mistico Tests Positive For COVID-19


Mexican grappler Mistico has confirmed via Instagram that he has tested positive for COVID-19 and is currently recovering from the virus.

The star admitted he is quite scared due to the damage the virus has done globally before explaining the symptoms he’s currently dealing with. The luchador alerted fans to his illness in an Instagram post saying the following:

“There wasn’t a worse way that I could say bye to the year other than testing positive for COVID-19. Hopefully, these discomforts end soon. God bless you all and take care of yourselves. My friends, this is crazy. Bags under my eyes, headaches, my bones hurt, chills, weight loss. And I want to say to all of my friends, who are checking up on me that I am well. And to my family, I love you for supporting me always. But I will say that I am scared knowing that this virus that has killed many people is now in my body. But I am a fighter and it will not defeat me. It will be one more challenge in my life. A fight vs COVID-19.”

This is the current Mistico, the second man to wear the mask following the original Mistico’s move to WWE as Sin Cara in 2012. That performer is now wrestling under a different mask and named Caristico in CMLL.

This news follows a trend of wrestlers testing positive for Covid-19: Recently, both Mick Foley & EC3 also fell ill with the virus.

Everyone at Inside The Ropes wishes Mistico the best in his recovery.
