Although Brie Bella is at home with her daughter, her husband Daniel Bryan is currently wrestling for WWE in Orlando, Florida and she is worried.
On a recent episode of “The Bellas Podcast,” Brie would go on to reveal that Bryan actually has an autoimmune disease and given the coronavirus outbreak that has affected many countries around the world, including the United States, Brie is understandably concerned. WWE has temporarily moved Raw and SmackDown to the WWE Performance Center in Orlando.
“I have to say, my husband is still working and he’s in Orlando right now and granted, he’s working and he has a job, but it makes me really nervous. My husband has an autoimmune disease. He also fought asthma really bad when he was young. He was always sick when he was a kid. I admit. I lost sleep last night. I’m grateful my husband is still employed but at the same time, I’m really scared that he’s just there all the time. I’m just praying so much that he’s staying healthy and all that. It’s like this weird tug of war right now,” Brie said.
Brie, who is pregnant with her second child, would go on to add that when Bryan returns home from WWE, that he will have to be put up in a hotel and be examined for any symptoms. While Brie laments the fact that it could be weeks before she gets to be with Bryan, she is thankful that they can still communicate with each other. Bryan wrestled on the March 20 episode of SmackDown, teaming with Drew Gulak to beat Cesaro & Shinsuke Nakamura in a tag team match.
“I feel bad because he’s over there and when he comes home, we’re going to have him be put up in a hotel and our naturopath Dr. Jane, he’s amazing, he’s going to kind of work with Bryan and to kind of see if he has symptoms before he comes home to [Birdie, Brie and Bryan’s daughter] and I. That could be weeks. When he left, I was just like, ‘It could be three weeks before I see you’ and it’s just sad but thank goodness for technology, FaceTime and all that. It’s a weird time right now. I felt like everyone’s emotions are in tugs of war and you don’t know what to film, but I do like seeing on social [media] that there’s more positivity,” Brie said.
Earlier in the podcast, Brie’s sister Nikki also admitted that she had Influenza-B in her first trimester as both she and Brie are currently pregnant. In addition, the two sisters revealed that they had to cancel several projects they were working on, including a live podcast tour.
