Mysterio explained in Spanish that he was feeling under the weather when WWE started taping shows at the Performance Center and that the WWE doctors opted for him to stay home to avoid any potential issues (h/t to ComicBook.com).
He also stated that he showed no signs or symptoms or coronavirus, and speculated that it was caused by traveling from Orlando to San Diego.
As noted last month, it was likely that Rey Mysterio was considered to go against Andrade for the U.S. Title at WrestleMania 36. With Rey being out, the match was then turned into Andrade and Angel Garza vs. Street Profits for the RAW Tag Team Championships.
