Lance Archer announces he tested positive for COVID-19

By Jason Powell, ProWrestling.net Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

AEW wrestler Lance Archer announced that he has tested positive COVID-19. Archer indicated that he believes he got the virus from a family friend. He added that he intends to return to AEW in two weeks.

Powell’s POV: This partially explains why they changed the six-man tag main event of tonight’s AEW Dynamite. The show was originally slated to feature Jon Moxley, Will Hobbs, and Darby Allin vs. Lance Archer, Brian Cage, and Ricky Starks, but that match has been replaced by Moxley vs. Eddie Kingston for the AEW Championship.

  1. stop testing now….if you dont test you wont find cases. if someone is ill they should be allowed to miss work. but if they not ill dont test them. the tests have false positives.

    • The only places that have the virus under control are doing MORE testing, not less. False positives are extremely rare, especially at places where they’re using real science (i.e. not AEW or WWE) to develop better tests and administer them regularly.

      Every university that’s successfully handling the virus is testing a minimum of 25% of their total population every week, including those who are asymptomatic.

      To stop testing is literally the dumbest thing that anyone could do right now.

      • But if we stop screening potential cancer patients, then we won’t have any cases of cancer and we can claim that we’ve cured cancer!!! Sigh. I agree. More testing. It’s common sense, which seems to be lost on far too many people right now.
