AEW Dynamite Tapings Cancelled

AEW Dynamite Thumb

AEW have officially announced that several of their upcoming tapings of Dynamite have been cancelled with a view to rescheduling at a later date.

Tapings at the Lakefront Arena in New Orleans, Louisiana (December 2) and the Rio Rancho Events Centre in Rio Rancho, New Mexico (December 30) have been called off with only the former being deferred to a later date. AEW’s planned recording for Rio Rancho has been cancelled altogether.

The December 2 taping comes as a particular blow for the company as it will be headlined by Jon Moxley vs. Kenny Omega for the AEW World Heavyweight Championship. A match the company would have liked a different setting for.

The official AEW statement reads
