AEW & New Japan's Danny Limelight reveals positive COVID-19 test


AEW and New Japan's Danny Limelight revealed on Twitter Wednesday that he has COVID-19.

He didn't give any details, but said he was "on the road to getting better now." He later tweeted, "If you’re lying about your covid tests so you don’t lose a booking/opportunity and you’re risking everyone else’s health you’re the worst kind of person."

The 29-year-old's next appearance is on this Friday's New Japan Strong as he will team with Chris Dickinson against TJP and Ren Narita in a match that was already taped.

He has been a regular on AEW Dark, Strong, and Championship Wrestling of Hollywood where he's one half of their tag team champions. He was last seen on the February 2nd edition of Dark, teaming with RYZIN in a losing effort to The Acclaimed in a match that was taped last week. Tuesday's episode of Dark was the first he hasn't been on since he debuted in October.

Limelight debuted on Strong last August and recently picked up singles wins on AEW Dark over Fuego del Sol and Sean Maluta, respectively.
