Rusev, real name Miroslav Barnyashev, has revealed that he tested positive for Coronavirus. He made the stunning revelation on his Twitch Live stream.
Former WWE Star Rusev has admitted that he has tested positive for the coronavirus. The Bulgarian Brute added that he got a phone call from his doctor to confirm the unfortunate news and while he tried to convince her otherwise, he ultimately relented admitting that she only confirmed what he already knew.
“I am absolutely positive for COVID-19,” he said. “I am absolutely, 100 percent, super mega incredibly positive. Yes. I got a phone call from the doctor. I got a random call from a number, and I answered and she’s like, ‘Is this,’ and then she tried to pronounce my name about six times.
“None of them were successful, but finally I agreed that this is definitely me that she’s trying to say and she say, ‘Hey, you’re in the contact.’ I’m like, ‘What do you mean?’ I had my test result that said that I’m not and she goes, ‘Wait, what?’ I’m like, ‘Yeah, I got the test result here and it says I don’t have it, I don’t know what you’re talking about.’ And then I tried to convince her, you know how we tried to discuss the whole detected and not detected. The not detected is 0-1, I guess that means nothing. I guess just underneath the result it says detected, so I guess they won. I feel great, I kinda knew that with the whole smell and taste situation and now this just confirms it.”
Lana to be kept off WWE TV?
Rusev’s wife Lana, who still works in the WWE, recently revealed that her parents also tested positive for Covid-19. She has since said that they are doing better but are not out of the woods yet.
It is likely though that the WWE will not feature on WWE television for some time. An exposure to the virus should be enough grounds to keep her away from the performance centre until tests prove that she is safe herself.
