Former WWE Superstar Rusev tests positive for COVID-19

Former WWE Superstar Rusev (Miroslav Barnyashev) announced during his Twitch stream that he has tested positive for COVID-19 after initially being told the test was negative.

Barnyashev’s wife CJ “Lana” Perry provided a update yesterday on her parent’s condition after she revealed last Thursday that they both had tested positive for COVID-19.  

Barnyashev was released this past April due to budget cuts releated to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

He has continued to be teased in the latest IMPACT Wrestling Slammiversary video promo.  However, with the pay-per-view next Saturday, it is unlikey at this point he would make his debut with the company. 

From the entire staff at Wrestleview, we wish Miroslav Barnyashev a speedy recovery.
