In a recent interview with Wrestling Observer Radio to promote the upcoming AEW All Out pay-per-view, AEW World Champion Jon Moxley discussed learning that his wife Renee Young had COVID-19 recently.
“She came back from Orlando, apparently somebody there had it, everybody had to get tested. She was negative, she flew home, then five or six days later, she starts feeling sick and I’m thinking nothing of it, but next morning she said that she hopes that she doesn’t have COVID.
The next day, I went to train in the morning, I came back and she was still in bed, she said she felt like s***. I figured we would get her tested, the test came back in an e-mail, I looked at mine and it said negative and I figured hers would be the same, because we have been in super close contact for six days.
At this point, I had already pulled out of the next days’ television, because all I was going to do was a promo and it wasn’t worth the risk. I see it was negative, so for 30 seconds, I figured that I could catch the 6am flight and still make television, but not 30 seconds later, she gets hers back and it’s positive. I didn’t expect us to have different results, I went and slept on the couch, I didn’t know what to do, so I got tested again as soon as I could.
She was bad for a couple of days, she was coughing a bunch, I was sleeping on the couch hearing her cough all night. I didn’t sleep for two days because I was scared, I’m not ashamed to admit that I was scared, because we know so little about this disease and it affects everybody differently. Her case was average at best, she was sick for a couple of days, it lingered a bit and now, she’s fine.”
