How AEW Managed To Keep The 50-Men Limit For Dynamite Tapings



All Elite Wrestling produced an excellent episode of AEW Dynamite this week, which received rave reviews from all sectors of the professional wrestling community. The episode, which aired from a close space in Florida, featured several big moments, including the debuts of Brodie Lee (f.k.a Luke Harper) and Matt Hardy.

The airings of Dynamite will apparently continue to take place from the closed set setting for the time being, due to the widespread COVID-19 outbreak. The pandemic has taken a major toll on AEW’s rivals, WWE, as well. AEW’s prime rival, NXT, featured zero wrestling this week, and majorly focused on advancing the storylines with video packages and interviews.

The CDC recently put out a notice that there shouldn’t be a gathering of more than fifty people at a particular time, and AEW’s broadcasters, TNT, have implemented the rule for AEW programming as well. AEW had to phase out the production in a properly timed manner to ensure that no more than fifty gentlemen were on the set at a particular given time.

Wrestling Observer Newsletter reported that AEW did their best to ensure they followed AEW’s orders and loaded the arena in phases to keep the rule in check. AEW was hosted from the Daily’s Place in Jacksonville, Flordia, which is also the hometown of the Khan family’s NFL team, Jacksonville Jaguars.

WON put out the whole flow of how AEW managed to keep the rule in check, which included keeping a light crew and ensuring the crew left before the wrestlers entered the arena.

“AEW ran with a light crew. The crew left the building after load-in before the wrestlers were allowed to enter the building. They had strict rules to never have more than 50 people in the large Amphitheater at one time. There were no congregations of people in discussions that numbered more than ten.”

AEW also managed to keep social distancing at ringside and tried to keep the wrestlers as far away as possible, which is in response to the guidelines for keeping the pandemic in control.
