Dominik & Rey Mysterio

Details On Rey Mysterio & Dominik Mysterio Testing Positive For COVID-19

Rey Mysterio and his son, Dominik Mysterio, who are both working for the Friday Night SmackDown brand recently appeared as a guest on the Start Today Podcast with host Chris Cavallini, where the Mysterio family revealed that they were diagnosed with COVID-19 on Rey’s 46th birthday, December 11th. Rey and Dominik Mysterio first revealed that they were supposed to record the podcast in December, but had to delay it due to COVID-19.

Rey Mysterio then indicated that his parents both caught the coronavirus and then passed it on to his housekeeper, who then passed it on to his wife. Rey then said that he spent time with his wife before flying out to do SmackDown and that his entire family including the housekeeper ended up dealing with the virus, except for his daughter Aaliyah.

Rey Mysterio said:

“It has been so confusing for me and my family, and we’ve tried to really understand how this works because it changes every time. My parents ended up catching COVID and we were taking care of them, making sure they didn’t catch it, but somehow they caught it and brought it to my house, passed it on to my housekeeper, my housekeeper then passed it onto my wife.” “I was with my wife for maybe three days, I flew out to Tampa to do SmackDown and I found out that Friday morning before I walked into the arena that my housekeeper had tested positive, so I then brought it to [WWE’s] attention.”

“I said I don’t want to be the guy—and we [Dominik and Rey] both tested negative the night before, and my daughter flew in earlier and tested negative—so keep in mind that my daughter, Dominik and myself were around my housekeeper and my wife. My wife tested negative, my housekeeper tested positive.”

Rey later said he learned about the positive test on his birthday while preparing for SmackDown later that night and he did not enter the building and flew home the following day. He then tested negative again, but began experiencing symptoms on Saturday night and woke up on Sunday and “just knew” he had the virus. Dominik would then reveal that he was sick that Tuesday night and still tested positive on Thursday. Rey’s symptoms reportedly included migraine-like headaches and bad body aches for days.
