AEW Filmed Segments In Georgia; Governor Issues Shelter-In-Place Order

AEW may have to find a new filming location once again. 

All Elite Wrestling had been taping segments and matches for AEW Dynamite and Dark at Daily's Place in Jacksonville, FL but had to move to an undisclosed location after the city of Jacksonville began setting up the parking lot near Daily's Place as a major coronavirus testing center and Florida issued a shelter-in-place order.

Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer reported AEW filmed "a lot of content" at the Nightmare Factory in Norcross, Georgia this past week.

But if they hope to film more content at the Nightmare Factory, they could be in trouble as Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp issued a shelter-in-place order for the state. Kemp admitted that he just learned asymptomatic people could transmit the coronavirus during his press conference on Wednesday, which is why the shelter-in-place order took so long.

“Those individuals could have been infecting people before they ever felt symptoms," he said. “We didn’t know that until the last 24 hours.”

As of now, AEW will continue to air its weekly Dynamite shows Wednesdays on TNT. It is unknown how many weeks of new content they will be able to produce with the footage they have already filmed or if they will continue to film at other locations.
