Lance Archer tests positive for COVID-19, Jon Moxley to defend World Championship tonight on Dynamite

Lance Archer has announced that he has tested positive for COVID-19 so he won’t be appearing on AEW shows for at least a couple of weeks.

Archer tweeted, “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”

Meanwhile, Tony Khan has announced a change to tonight’s AEW Dynamite card.

Jon Moxley will be defending the AEW World Championship against Eddie Kingston. Khan tweeted, “Tonight on #AEWDynamite Live on TNT at 8pm ET/7 CT, JonMoxley v. Eddie Kingston for the AEW Championship! There were questions about if Eddie’s Battle Royale elimination was valid (Lance + Eddie were the final 2, Lance threw him off the top but not over), now Eddie gets his shot!”

Moxley was supposed to be part of a 6-man tag. It was scheduled to be Moxley teaming up with Will Hobbs and Darby Allin against Archer, Ricky Starks and Brian Cage. Obviously, Archer will not be involved and it looks like Moxley will not be in that match either.

The rest of the card is scheduled to include Brodie Lee defending the TNT Championship against Orange Cassidy, Hikaru Shida and Thunder Rosa vs. Diamante and Ivelisse and an appearance by Chris Jericho.
