Where AEW Has Been Taping Shows Revealed
The “undisclosed location” where AEW has done a lot of tapings recently has seemingly been disclosed. AEW filmed at QT Marshall’s gym in Norcross, Georgia, and Georgia state officials apparently showed up to try and shut down the tapings (h/t WrestlingInc). The company was allowed to continue the tapings with the officials remaining to ensure that certain codes were followed.
Georgia has now issued a stay-at-home order that extends until April 13th. AEW apparently taped enough footage to last them until shows until mid-May.
WWE Has No COVID-19 Positive Cases
In a bit of good news, no WWE superstars have tested positive for Coronavirus according to Dave Meltzer (h/t Fightful). There were concerning reports of wrestlers being sick or self-isolating like Rey Mysterio, Dana Brooke, Murphy and The Miz, but none have tested positive thus far. Let’s hope wrestlers from all companies continue to keep themselves safe, and that all wrestling fans do as well.
One for the Road:
If you play Gears 5, you can now Batista Bomb aliens. So, there’s that.
