Backstage News On COVID-19 Impacting Viewership Of AEW Dynamite

145

Word making rounds throughout the AEW locker room is that the promotion’s momentum was halted by the COVID-19 pandemic in a major way.

The feeling is if Dynamite scheduled for Rochester, NY on March 18 and the special “Blood & Guts” show took place on March 25 in Newark, NJ as planned, AEW Dynamite would be doing “big time numbers right now.”

Jon Alba of Spectrum Sports 360 reporting:

“Talked to a few in #AEW about this, and they all say the same thing: If the Rochester and Newark (Blood & Guts) shows went off as planned, #AEWDynamite would be doing big time numbers right now. Felt like a lot of the momentum was stalled. Show was excellent this week.”

AEW postponed the Rochester show from the Blue Cross Arena to November 11, 2020. They’ll run from the Prudential Center in Newark on February, 24, 2021.
