Just hours before tonight’s live Dynamite taping, Jon Moxley has been pulled due to COVID-19 precautions.
AEW President Tony Khan tweeted:
“Recently @JonMoxley had contact with someone who had contact with someone who has COVID-19. Mox did the right thing & warned us. Doc asked him to stay home & get tested to protect us here at our test site. Cage will be in action tonight on #AEWDynamite ahead of their title fight.”
Moxley was scheduled to be in action against an unnamed opponent.
As of this writing, he is still set to defend the AEW World title against Brian Cage at Fyter Fest.
Moxley is the second AEW performer to be pulled from tonight’s Dynamite taping, as QT Marshall was also revealed to have come in contact with an individual who tested positive for COVID-19.
