Earlier in the day on June 24th, AEW President Tony Khan tweeted out that AEW World Champion Jon Moxley was going to be removed from the Dynamite lineup because he had second-hand contact with someone that has Coronavirus. Moxley was not flown in to Florida and he was replaced in the segment by Brian Cage, who he’s scheduled to defend the AEW World Title against at Fyter Fest on July 8th.
It was first reported by Fightful’s Sean Ross Sapp that multiple people who were present at the WWE Performance Center tested positive for Coronavirus, including in-ring talent.
POST Wrestling was informed by one source that talent and crew were informed on Tuesday night that they would have to arrive early this week as testing will be conducted prior to the tapings taking place Friday and Saturday. A second person we spoke with noted they were tested today (Wednesday) with testing taking place on Thursday, as well.
