KENTA reveals positive COVID-19 test


KENTA revealed on social media that he has tested positive for COVID-19.

On Instagram, KENTA wrote that he has been suffering from COVID for the last few weeks, but has since tested negative.

“I got COVID last few weeks,” he wrote. "First of all, I apologize to everyone who had to [change plans] because of me. Fortunately, my symptom was not too bad. Just [had a] fever a few days (102 F) and lost my smell. But now I’m totally fine. And got [a negative test]. Stay safe and healthy, everyone.”

KENTA last appeared for NJPW back on July 25, when he competed in the King of Pro Wrestling 22-man Ranbo battle royal. Prior to that, he lost to Hiroshi Tanahashi at NJPW’s Summer Struggle event in Nagoya a day prior.

NJPW’s next major event is Wrestle Grand Slam in MetLife Dome, which will take place over two days on September 4 and 5.
