Chris Jericho shared some interesting news during the latest episode of his podcast, Talk is Jericho. Dr. Alex Patel, a critical care ICU doctor based in Toronto, Canada, was the guest for the episode as the two men talked about the COVID-19 pandemic.

It turns out that Jericho tested positive for the coronavirus around September, but had no symptoms.

“It’s interesting because I haven’t really told anyone this, but I tested positive maybe back in September. I had zero symptoms. I had my 10 days in isolation and stayed away from everybody. I didn't have a symptom, I didn't even know I had it. I went and got a test in general and they said I was positive. I was like, 'Really? Are you serious? I didn’t have anything, I didn’t have a headache, I didn’t have a cough, which I guess is a very lucky thing. On top of that, once I did have it, it wasn’t a false positive, I took three different tests and they’re all positive. Now, I have the antibodies.”
