NJPW's KENTA Reveals Positive COVID-19 Test
The positive diagnosis was a couple of weeks ago
New Japan Pro-Wrestling's KENTA has revealed he has tested positive for COVID-19.
KENTA, in a post on social media, revealed that he had registered a positive test for coronavirus a couple of weeks ago but had since tested negative for the virus.
KENTA wrote, per F4WOnline: "I got COVID last few weeks. 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 made an appearance for NJPW back on July 25, when he competed in the King of Pro Wrestling 22-man Ranbo Battle Royal. Prior to that, KENTA was defeated by Hiroshi Tanahashi at NJPW’s Summer Struggle event in Nagoya a day earlier.
NJPW’s next major event is Wrestle Grand Slam in MetLife Dome, which will take place over two days on September 4 and 5.
