WWE NXT's KUSHIDA Reveals Positive COVID-19 Test

KUSHIDA hasn't competed in a number of weeks on NXT

KUSHIDA has revealed he is recovering after returning a positive test for COVID-19.

KUSHIDA had been scheduled to defend the WWE NXT Cruiserweight Championship on the August 17 episode of the black-and-gold brand against Roderick Strong, but was announced as not being medically cleared to compete on the day of the show. 

The 38-year-old has now opened up on why he wasn't able to perform, admitting he and his family all tested positive for coronavirus.

Taking to Instagram, KUSHIDA said: "I hope everyone is okay. Three weeks ago, I was not available for my title match on NXT TV. I tested positive for COVID-19. My family also tested positive. 

"Fortunately, everyone is okay. My wife and I are fully vaccinated, but we still got the virus. Fortunately, the vaccine has given us immunity, but we experienced some symptoms. We have very low energy and I lost my sense of smell and taste.

"We are recovering. Everyone is feeling better now. The pandemic isn't over. Please stay safe. I will see you in the ring soon."
