Pro-wrestling legend Bill Eadie, who is best remembered as Ax from the famous WWE tag team Demolition, has contracted COVID-19. The news was broken by Martin Damato on Facebook as Eadie was set to appear at a virtual meet-and-greet for Damato’s T-Mart company. See his statement below.
Some bad news to report.
Unfortunately Demolition signing will not take place this Saturday.
I just got a call from Bill and his oldest Grandson had contacted Covid last week and now Bill and his wife are feeling sick with symptoms..
Let’s all send our prayers to one of the nicest guys you can ever meet Bill Eadie and is family as they deal with Covid..

Eadie isn’t the only legend who has tested positive for the virus. WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley has also been battling with COVID-19, and it was revealed earlier this morning that former AEW world champion Chris Jericho also tested positive back in 2020, although he didn’t exhibit any symptoms.
