AEW star Lance Archer says he has tested positive for COVID-19.
Archer went public with his diagnosis via social media, writing:
“When I returned from our last show, a family member was ill when I got home. I found out later a friend who had taken my family member to the Vet for our Dachshund was COVID positive. While at home, now I’ve also gotten sick tested positive. I feel ok, expect to see me in 2 wks.”
Lance is currently set to challenge Jon Moxley for the AEW World Championship next month on the Dynamite anniversary show. Archer says he will still make that date, despite the recent diagnosis.
Since Archer is unable to wrestle in the scheduled six-man tag team match tonight, Moxley will instead defend his title against Eddie Kingston.
