AJ Styles reveals he tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this year

During a stream on his Twitch channel Wednesday night, AJ Styles revealed that he tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this year.

“I also tested positive a couple of weeks ago, probably almost a month. I think, ago," Styles said when asked about Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson announcing that he and his family battled COVID-19. "I feel for people who have to deal with this, but I gotta say, I didn’t have many problems with it. So, hopefully The Rock and his family, hopefully everybody is safe and everybody is taken care of and nobody has too bad of symptoms and stuff like that. It sucks, it’s not good for anybody.”

Styles said he was one of the lucky ones and didn't have severe symptoms. He had a headache and "maybe a couple boogers" but never had a fever.

In an Instagram video on Wednesday, Johnson said that he, his wife Lauren Hashian, and their two young daughters Jasmine and Tiana tested positive for COVID-19 but are now on the other end of it and are no longer contagious. Johnson called the experience one of the most challenging and difficult things he's ever had to endure and urged everyone to "control the controllables" in terms of boosting their immune systems, wearing masks, and applying an even greater sense of discipline in having friends and family over.

Kevin Nash wrote to Johnson on Twitter and said that he also battled COVID-19: "Welcome to the team. Very sorry you're family is infected. I was tired for a while didn't train for the 4th day. My wife still hasn't got smell or tastes back. Son was asymptomatic. Pray you heal up quickly. Thank you for making people realize it's real."
