Unfortunately, we are now seeing some wrestlers get struck with COVID-19 after months of things running fairly smoothly.
We first saw The Murderhawk Monster Lance Archer, announce that he has tested positive for COVID-19 around 3:30 pm on September 24th. Lance has been on a roll as of late and was scheduled to be facing Jon Moxley for the AEW championship in the coming weeks after he won the AEW Casino Battle Royal at Double or Nothing. Get well soon Murderhawk Monster!
This morning saw COVID-19 hit two more superstars who are both making waves as well. First one to announce it this morning, came from Alex Zayne. Alex has been killing it with the New Japan Pro Wrestling of America roster as of late. Alex Zayne was set to make an appearance this Saturday at Warrior Wrestling against Brian Cage and at Black Label Pro next Saturday to take on Kylie Rae. Both of those are matches that the fans really hope to get the chance to see get rescheduled sometime in the future! Get well Taco Bell man.
The one that may have hurt the most in my opinion, had to of been the announcement just a couple of hours ago by Benjamin Carter. This man has been on a roll as of late and just had an incredible showing on Late Night Dynamite Tuesday against Scorpio Sky. Benjamin Carter also had probably the greatest match in the history of AEW Dark as he took on Lee Johnson the other night as well. Carter has been tearing it up as of late and having some knockout Indy matches as well with the likes of Brian Cage, The Rascalz, and more. We hope to see Benjamin Carter get back in the AEW ring when he gets healthy again! Get well soon Ben!
All three of these men were set to have matches this coming Saturday at Warrior Wrestling in Chicago Heights. Lance Archer was scheduled to face Rhyno in what was sure to be a true battle of big men. Alex Zayne was set to have a killer match with Brian Cage that was sure to make everybody’s jaws drop. Then Benjamin Carter was scheduled to have a fatal 4 way match with him, Blake Christian, Isaias Velazquez, and Travis Titan. These three men were going to have some very fun and energetic match-ups this weekend and it is a shame that we are going to have to wait to see these happen. We hope that they all have a speedy recovery from this minor setback!
