Lance Archer is a major character in AEW right now, after winning the Casino Battle Royal at All Out to earn a shot at Jon Moxley’s AEW World Championship. Tonight, he was supposed to team with “Absolute” Ricky Starks and “The Machine” Brian Cage to take on Will Hobbs, Darby Allin and Mox.
That match will no longer be taking place, as Archer has entered an immediate quarantine following a positive test for the COVID-19 virus.
Archer’s title opportunity in three weeks is on the table still, however.
It’s not the first time a superstar in the world title picture has missed the two weeks prior to his match due to the virus, as Moxley himself quarantine right before Fight For The Fallen against Brian Cage, due to Renee Young’s positive COVID-19 bout. This is what triggered Taz’s “Sloppy Shop” comment. It’s clear though that Archer hasn’t come into contact with his coworkers since testing positive.
PSE will keep you updated. Reminder, you can watch AEW Dynamite tonight on TNT at 8 PM. We at PSE wish Archer the best over the next two weeks with this illness, as well as his friend and his dog.
