The coronavirus pandemic messed up the entire world. As other countries are seeing a decline in positive cases America can’t seem to find the same trend. This creates a situation where borders are closed for safety’s sake. A lot of plans were ruined all over the planet, and AEW was no exception.
Pac and the Lucha Bros were set to be the Death Triangle stable in AEW. That faction was quickly disbanded when Pac was unable to make it back for Dynamite. It’s been months since the former Neville was able to wrestle for All Elite Wrestling although he did send in one short promo.
While speaking to the New York Post, Tony Khan provided an update on Pac. The current travel ban and mandated quarantine times simply makes it impossible for Pac to make the trip from the UK often enough to remain on television.
I really miss PAC a lot. Right now the border is not a great situation. As I understand it, if he were to go back to England, if he were to come here and he was able to get in, do a quarantine after travel then he would also, when he tried to go home, he’d be in a two-week quarantine before he could do anything. So it just doesn’t seem like a sustainable situation right now because PAC lives in England, so until travel is sustainable and he could do what he used to do, which is come here and stay and do a few shows and then go back to England and really commute across the Atlantic, it’s very challenging right now. Until it becomes safe to travel back and forth for PAC to make those trips internationally, until the border is really ready, I don’t think we can rush him back even though we’d love to have him.
Tony Khan misses having Pac around, and he’s not the only one. AEW had a formidable stable in the Death Triangle that fans couldn’t wait to see in action. They will have to wait a bit longer because things don’t seem to be getting any better when it comes to America’s COVID-19 situation.
AEW also had to cancel plans to hold Fyter Fest in London. Hopefully, they will be able to make that up eventually.
