Lucha Libre Online stated on Twitter that former WWE and current AAA announcer Hugo Savinovich reported Konnan has tested positive for COVID-19. The following was posted by the media outlet, which has been translated to English:
“As Hugo Savinovich has just reported, Konnan has confirmed to us that he unfortunately tested positive for COVID-19, which is why he is hospitalized. He recognized that his life was in danger.
“At this moment, he is out of danger and hopes to be given a medical discharge between today and tomorrow to be able to continue treatment from home. Konnan is in our prayers as his family, and we wish him a speedy recovery.”
There’s still no further details on his kidney issues at the moment. We wish him a speedy recovery.
