Hours before AEW Dynamite goes on the air, there's been another change in the match lineup.
AEW announced that FTR will now face former AEW World Tag Team Champions SCU instead of the Natural Nightmares. No reason for the change was given, but AEW said on social media that it will be addressed on tonight's show.
MATCH UPDATE#FTR will face #SCU on less than six hours notice!— All Elite Wrestling (@AEWrestling) June 24, 2020
Can #FTR change focus? & Can #FTR be prepared for a team as experienced as @facdaniels & @FrankieKazarian?

Tony Khan posted the following statement, saying QT Marshall came into contact with a non-wrestling acquaintance who had tested positive for COVID-19. Instead of risking AEW talent and staff, Marshall will remain in Georgia to quarantine and take a COVID-19 test.
Since last week’s show, in his everyday life, QT had brief contact with a non-wrestling acquaintance who since tested positive for COVID-19. Rather than risk bringing QT to our test site, our doc asked him to stay home & take a COVID test back in GA to protect the rest of us here https://t.co/eeN8VmF2nP— Tony Khan (@TonyKhan) June 24, 2020
