The COVID-19 (Corona virus) pandemic has affected yet another wrestling company. All Elite Wrestling has seen their next two weeks of television, including the special Blood & Guts episode, officially changed. Here is AEW’s official statement on the upcoming episodes of AEW Dynamite:


AEW has rescheduled next week’s show in Rochester to occur on July 8 according and will be live from Daily’s Place in Jacksonville, Florida. The show in Newark, NJ has also been rescheduled at the same venue for July 22.

The Prudential Center in Newark, NJ, home of the scheduled AEW Blood & Guts show, released this statement as they have suspended all events through the end of March.

AEW joins a number of sports around the world and wrestling companies in canceling shows. WWE had to reschedule Friday’s SmackDown show that was set in Detroit to now be hosted in the Performance Center. WrestleMania 36 is currently in flux with no guarantee it goes on following the meetings in Tampa Bay, Florida today as well.

Blood & Guts was the main story behind the past two weeks of Dynamite. The planned match for the first-ever bout was to be between The Inner Circle and The Elite. It’ll be interesting to see what the company does with the event now that they have no home for it as of this moment. With this being their strategy as of now, there is a good chance that Blood & Guts will also go down inside Daily’s Place.

Until the COVID-19 spread is controlled to some degree, expect more cancellations and unique shows in the coming weeks.
