Earlier this week, WWE Superstar AJ Styles revealed on his Twitch stream that he tested positive for COVID-19. Thankfully, the Phenomenal One didn't have too many problems and has fully recovered now.

"I also tested positive a couple of weeks ago, probably almost a month ago. I feel for people who have to deal with this, but I gotta say, I didn't have that many problems with it."

As per the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, AJ Styles tested positive for the coronavirus in June. It was at the same time when several other WWE employees including Renee Young and Adam Pearce also tested positive for COVID-19.

Him testing positive was the reason why he missed several weeks of WWE programming after his segment with Renee Young and Daniel Bryan. AJ Styles' match against Drew Gulak was also pushed back due to the same.
