AEW executive vice president and World Tag Team Champion Nick Jackson of the Young Bucks has opened up about his battle with COVID-19.
Jackson revealed that he had the virus in September and called out those who still have their doubts about its legitimacy.
Taking to his Instagram story, he wrote:
Crazy to think there’s still COVID deniers out there in the world. I had a pretty bad case of COVID in early September that kept me bed ridden for nearly 3 weeks. I couldn’t taste or smell for 2 and a half months. At one point my whole body had hives on it and my doctor said that it was definitely from COVID. Matt had to do the majority of the work in matches once I returned safely because I couldn’t catch my breath, My cardio is finally back but it took months to finally feel like myself again. Let’s protect each other and wear mask(s).
Since his return, the Young Bucks have become World Tag Team Champions by beating FTR and have defended the title against the Acclaimed.
Their next challengers look likely to be Christopher Daniels and Frankie Kazarian of SCU.
