– Booker T revealed on his Hall of Fame podcast this week that he found out he was notified by the CDC that he tested positive for COVID-19 this month. According to the WWE Hall of Famer, he originally had his test done in June, but the results were apparently lost, and he started to feel sick for a while. He took it upon himself to self-quarantine at home until his symptoms started subsiding. He didn’t find out that he tested positive until recently. Below are some highlights and a clip from the show:

Booker T on testing positive for the coronavirus: “About an hour ago, from the CDC, they told me that I have tested positive for the coronavirus back at the end of June. I never got my result back, but they called me, rest assured, today to tell me that back at the end of June when I got tested, I tested positive. And I’ve had three tests since then, and they all came back negative. It just goes to show how backed up we really are with this system that we’re working with as far as people finding out if they got this, or if they don’t got — I’m living proof. I’m living proof. Thank God I’m still here, and I got a healthy immune system. And God spared me on this one, but I could have been one of the nearly 200,000 that didn’t know I had this and I was gone and on my way to the next life.”

Booker T on what he went through: “But man, it’s bigger than that. I know what I went through — It wasn’t a long time. It was a couple of weeks that I went through it. I had the headaches, the night sweats, I lost my taste and smell for two weeks. And I t hank God I was smart enough to quarantine from the family. I stayed away from everyone. I put myself off in the west wing, you know what I’m saying? And I stayed there for a couple of weeks until I started feeling better, until everything started subsiding.”
