I debated sharing this, as it still feels raw and personal right now, but I’ve always believed in sharing both the good and the tough with our community. My husband, Rener, tested positive for COVID last Wednesday in the beginning of our vacation in Utah with my family. We all returned home immediately. I have now tested positive, and my 2 year old, Renson, has had a fever, who we also assume to be positive. We have a great support system and a great vitamin/ supplement regimen, and we know many of you may have already battled with this virus and all the weight that comes with it. We welcome your positive thoughts for us and my family as we are hoping to be on the other side of this soon.
Join us in wishing the Torres-Gracie family a full & speedy recovery.
As with similar updates recently from other wrestling legends like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Kevin Nash, take Eve sharing this personal story with us as a reminder we’re still in a pandemic.
Take care of yourselves, and take steps to take care of each other.
