It’s going around these days. The Coronavirus pandemic has changed the way the world works and wrestling has been no exception. It seems that every single day sees another wrestler either testing positive for the virus or being put in quarantine over possibly coming in contact with someone who has. Now it has happened again and it has changed two upcoming title matches.
Both Impact Wrestling and AEW have announced that title matches scheduled for this Saturday have been postponed due to Coronavirus issues. Impact Wrestling Knockouts Tag Team Champions the IInspiration have come in contact with someone who have tested positive and will not be able to defend their titles against the Influence at Hard To Kill. No replacement match has been announced. In addition, AEW has announced that TNT Champion Cody Rhodes will not be able to defend his title against Sammy Guevara at Battle of the Belts. Instead, Cody’s brother Dustin Rhodes will face Guevara for the Interim TNT Title.
This is a big change of pace. Check out the champs and their previous challengers:
Opinion: This is the kind of thing that is going to happen for a pretty long time to come and unfortunately it does not seem likely to change. What matters most is that all three of them are healthy, because this could get serious in a hurry otherwise. The title matches can take place later at a later date, so hopefully they can all get healthy sooner rather than later.
What did you expect from the matches? How will they go when they take place? Let us know in the comments below.
