AEW’s Lance Archer was scheduled to compete on tonight’s edition of Dynamite in a six-man tag team match alongside Brian Cage and Ricky Starks as they were set to take on Darby Allin, Will Hobbs and AEW World Champion Jon Moxley.
Archer took to Twitter recently and revealed that after indirectly coming in contact with a friend who was COVID positive, he has now tested positive for COVID-19.
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

Archer is still scheduled to challenge Jon Moxley for the AEW World Championship on the AEW Anniversary show on October 14th. Following Archer’s tweet, Moxley noted that he’s going to be putting the world title on the line on Dynamite. It was then confirmed that Moxley will defend the AEW World Title against Eddie Kingston on the show.
Change of plans. I'm putting up the title tonight. Live TV babe. #AEWDynamite
