The coronavirus is causing a lot of people to worry about this new pandemic. Pro wrestling events in Japan and Europe are being canceled. So far All Elite Wrestling has kept their doors open.

During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer mentioned what Tony Khan told the AEW locker room. They aren’t putting any pressure on their stars to make Dynamite tapings in light of the coronavirus threat.

“Tony Khan told all talent tonight that nobody is under pressure to work next week’s show as long as this is going on. He said that anyone who is feeling any illness or is stressed about travel that it’s okay to stay home. He said nobody will be judged by the decision that they make and nobody will lose their spot or their push over it.”

At this time AEW hasn’t canceled any events due to the coronavirus. The company did issue an official response saying that they are monitoring the situation.
