Joey Janela Pulled From Dynamite Over COVID Concerns

AEW just announced that Joey Janela has been pulled from tonight’s AEW Dynamite. He was scheduled to take on Kenny Omega as part of the AEW World Title Eliminator Tournament. His removal was out of precaution due to being exposed to someone who tested positive for COVID-19.

Here is the statement from AEW:

AEW and Joey Janela learned today that he had exposure to a known COVID-19 positive person at an independent show. For that reason, we are pulling him until such time as he is cleared to return consistent with our protocols.”

We reported earlier that several wrestlers tested positive since The GCW Collective shows which took place last weekend in Indiana. Janela was part of that event.

All Elite Wrestling announced that Sonny Kiss will be Janela’s replacement.
