The TNT champion was set to defend the championship against Sammy Guevara tonight on the TNT special in Charlotte and will be replaced by his brother, Dustin where an interim champion will be crowned.

Rhodes stated on his Instagram story that he and his wife Brandi are in isolation noting that family members had tested positive for COVID-19.

Rhodes wrote:

I appreciate everybody reaching out. Brandi and I are in isolation with family that have unfortunately tested positive for Covid. It’s been a scary time dealing with such a strong virus and the complications that can come with it. We are doing all we can to nurse and protect the family during this time. I will remain in quarantine as long as needed. Everyday is more encouraging. Thank you immensely for your support and respect for our privacy. Thank you to AEW for understanding and allowing me to be where I am needed today, and for still allowing the TNT Title to be represented. I look forward to being back soon. All the love in the world!
