Jon Moxley was scheduled to be part of tonight’s AEW Dynamite episode, even though an opponent for the former WWE star wasn’t announced, the company had stated that Moxley would be in action.
Earlier today, AEW president Tony Khan took to Twitter to state that QT Marshall wouldn’t be part of the show and would instead be tested for COVID-19 after being exposed to the virus outside of AEW’s venue.
Khan followed this announcement up by stating that Jon Moxley would also be missing from tonight’s show because he had admitted to officials that he had been exposed to someone who also had the virus.
Khan stated that Moxley was brave enough to come forward and protect his fellow AEW stars and would now have to be tested for the virus before he would be allowed back on AEW soil.
Earlier tonight, it was revealed by Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, and Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont had placed travel restrictions on people flying into those three states from states that have high COVID-19 outbreaks.
Florida is one of those states and the current issues are set to greatly affect AEW and WWE in the coming months since both promotions are in the Florida State and are now a number of stars down.
