SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...
AEW has pulled select talent from select independent wresting events to accommodate a scheduling conflict.
Sources tell PWTorch that the company is moving previously set AEW Dark tapings from April 30 to May 1. Talents that were planning on wrestling elsewhere on May 1 were held off so that they are available for the tapings. PWG and Black Label Pro were the two independent promotions impacted by the move.
Unfortunately Lee Moriarty, Skye Blue and Jake Something will not be appearing at Fancy Wrestling next week.
Updated matches and championship repercussions will be announced very soon.

Unfortunately, JD Drake, Top Flight, and Wheeler Yuta will not be able to wrestle at Delivering the Goods on 5/1. There will be some changes to the card.

Lee Moriarty, JD Drake, Top Flight, and Wheeler Yuta were specific talents that were removed from the shows. Dark has been taping in Orlando, Florida. It’s shoulder content for Dynamite and Rampage that airs every Tuesday on the AEW YouTube channel.
This week on Dynamite, Yuta and Moriarty found themselves on different teams in trios competition. Top Flight’s Darius Martin is reportedly set to miss significant time because of another injury.
Matches for the May 1 AEW Dark tapings have not been announced.
