AEW reportedly had to make changes to this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite. It was noted in this week’s Wrestling Observer that All Elite had to change plans due to the ongoing pandemic.

Two All Elite stars have reportedly tested positive for COVID-19, and whilst it is not known publicly who the two stars are, it’s potentially a major issue for the company.

The match that was planned for this week’s episode of the show, but by the time the two performers had tested positive the company had not yet made the announcement.

This is potentially worrying news for the company, as they head towards their biggest PPV event ever in All Out 2021. The last thing that All Elite needs right now is a potential cancellation of matches for Sunday, September 5th.

Again, it has not been confirmed if these two stars will be back for this week’s Dynamite, nor who they actually are.
