During an interview with Sports Illustrated Media Podcast, Roman Reigns discussed his struggles with COVID-19.
"For me, in comparison to some of the worst scenarios that are out there and we've seen through this process in the pandemic, it wasn't bad. For me, it was mainly a pretty good sinus infection, the bronchitis cough, a lot chest tightness. I still feel that, actually. When I'm doing my conditioning, because we don't wrestle quite as much as we're doing a lot of six-man (tag matches), I don't have singles matches as much as I used to, so I have to really push the conditioning on my own. I've noticed that in the past couple of weeks, when I really blow myself up on the bike or running, I can feel that tightness and a little bit of wheezing. It's definitely something serious. Someone who has been vaccinated and boosted, it still got to me and I still felt the effects. They weren't as severe as they can be for some, it did hang around and linger for a while. Obviously, I missed Day 1, I tested positive a week before that and it took me to where we were chasing that negative test and finally a few days before SmackDown the following week, I got the negative test," said Reigns.
Reigns is currently set to defend the WWE Universal Championship against Seth Rollins at WWE Royal Rumble.
