As the wrestling world continues to monitor the Coronavirus outbreak, All Elite Wrestling has moved another episode of Dynamite due to the virus.
It was announced on March 12 that the March 18 episode will no longer be taking place in Rochester, New York but has been moved to Daily's Place in Jacksonville, Florida. Rochester will play host to an episode of the show but it will now take place on July 8.
The March 25 episode which was supposed to take place at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, has also been rescheduled due to the Coronavirus. New Jersey will also have the opportunity to host an episode in July with the rescheduled date at the Prudential Center being July 22. This comes after the Prudential Center announced that it was canceling all events at the venue through the end of March.
Cody Rhodes commented on the move on his Twitter account and promised that great things are coming for the fans in the greater New York City area.
The Newark show is now 7/22 - which your original tickets will allow entry to or you can get a refund at all points of purchase. https://t.co/86vR0r6BaZ— Cody (@CodyRhodes) March 13, 2020
We have really great plans for the NYC/NJ area that haven’t been announced.— Cody (@CodyRhodes) March 13, 2020
