Jacksonville Mayor Suspends All Events After Confirmed Coronavirus Case, AEW Dynamite In Jeopardy

AEW Dynamite Results

Update: When asked about an update on Daily’s Place hosting AEW Dynamite, a Jacksonville city rep told us “Stay tuned updates coming” regarding the event.

AEW has since removed details about the “restricted audience” rules for Wednesday’s taping from their social media accounts.


Just last night, we reported that All Elite Wrestling was moving their next two weeks of TV tapings out of the New York area. Week one was scheduled to take place in Jacksonville at Daily’s Place with a “strict attendance protocol”, but that may not happen as of today. A patient in Duval County has tested positive for the Coronavirus, the sickness that’s spreading across the globe this week. As such, Mayor Lenny Curry has moved to suspend all events in the city. At a news conference this morning, Curry stated the following:

 I have ordered city departments to immediately suspend all permits for large gatherings and stop such gatherings at city parks or in city property, through the end of the month.

Libraries, public parks, and the Jacksonville Zoo will remain closed, as well as all city facilities. While Daily’s Place isn’t listed by name, the sweeping edict could cause AEW to have to find a second new home for their show in less than 48 hours.

WrestleZone has reached out to All Elite Wrestling and will update this story when further details reveal themselves.
