AEW broke the news on Wednesday night that, due to precautions surrounding the coronavirus, the Jon Moxley vs. Brian Cage AEW World Championship match would be delayed until the July 15 episode of AEW Dynamite, now named Fight for the Fallen. Taz and Brian Cage came out afterwards to cut a promo on the announcement, and the former WWE announcer decided to take a shot at his old company. For those who missed it, multiple WWE employees and wrestlers tested positive for COVID-19 last week at the WWE Performance Center, including Moxley's wife Renee Young. Only Young, Adam Pearce, Kayla Braxton and Jamie Noble have confirmed to have the virus, though the cases could reportedly be as high as two dozen (and WWE has reportedly told wrestlers not to say if they have the virus, meaning the actual total is unknown).
The commentary team explained that, as a precaution, Moxley would stay home even though he hasn't tested positive for the virus.
"And if you decided to get your ass here to work next week, you would get tested again here in AEW. Because Jon, as you know, we don't run a sloppy shop."
