Even on the first day of 2021, the defining disease of 2020 continues to infect the world. Famed Mexican grappler Mistico has confirmed that he has tested positive for COVID-19 and is currently recovering from the disease. He alerted fans to his illness in an Instagram post shared yesterday:

There wasn’t a worse way that I could say bye to the year other than testing positive for COVID-19. Hopefully, these discomforts end soon. God bless you all and take care of yourselves. My friends, this is crazy. Bags under my eyes, headaches, my bones hurt, chills, weight loss. And I want to say to all of my friends, who are checking up on me that I am well. And to my family, I love you for supporting me always. But I will say that I am scared knowing that this virus that has killed many people is now in my body. But I am a fighter and it will not defeat me. It will be one more challenge in my life. A fight vs COVID-19.
This is the current Mistico, the second man to don the mask following the original Mistico’s move to WWE as Sin Cara in 2012. That performer is now a peer of the current Mistico, wrestling under a different mask and named Caristico in CMLL.
Everyone at WrestleZone wishes Mistico a quick and painless recovery.
