Nick Jackson details battle with COVID-19


Nick Jackson has revealed that he had COVID-19 last fall.

On Instagram, Jackson went into detail with his battle against COVID-19 and wrote about his struggles with the disease:

Crazy to think there’s still COVID deniers out there in the world. I had a pretty bad case of COVID in early September that kept me bed ridden for nearly 3 weeks. I couldn’t taste or smell for 2 in a half months. At one point my whole body had hives in it and my doctor said that it was definitely from COVID. Matt had to do the majority of the work in matches once I returned safely because I couldn’t catch my breath. My cardio is finally back but it took months to finally feel like myself again. Let’s protect each other and wear [a] mask.

Since returning from his COVID-19 battle, Nick and his brother Matt have continued to be a major part of AEW's tag team division. They won the AEW Tag Team titles from FTR at AEW Full Gear on November 7. In recent weeks, they have faced off against the likes of Top Flight, The Acclaimed, and The Hybrid 2.
