WWE News: Roman Reigns discusses his COVID-19 experience and how he dealt with it
“For me, obviously in comparison to some of the worst scenarios that are out there and that we’ve seen through the pandemic, it wasn’t bad. For me, it was mainly a pretty good sinus infection, a bronchitis cough, a lot of chest tightness.
“I still feel that actually. When I’m doing my conditioning because we don’t wrestle quite as much and we’re doing a lot of six-man [tag team matches], I don’t have singles matches as much as I used to, so I have to continue to really push the conditioning on my own, and I have noticed in the past couple of weeks that when I really blow myself up on the bike or running, or whatever I’m doing, I can feel that tightness and a little bit of wheezing”
He added, “So it’s definitely something serious. As someone who is vaccinated and boosted, it still got to me, and I still felt the effects. While they weren’t as severe as they can be for some, it did hang around and linger for a while.”
