The CRAZY Measures AEW Is Taking With Tonight's Dynamite Tapes Revealed

AEW is going all-out to ensure the tapes make it to Atlanta.

All Elite Wrestling fans are set for a visual treat when tonight's episode of Dynamite hits the air, with the show pre-taped as part of Chris Jericho's Rock 'N' Wrestling Rager At Sea yesterday.

Pro-wrestling on a goddamn boat?! Yes please.

With the footage filmed while the Jericho Cruise was stationed in the Bahamas, AEW was faced with the challenge of transporting their master tapes back to Atlanta, Georgia for editing - and Dave Meltzer has revealed the extreme measures the promotion is taking to ensure they get there.

Per Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, AEW filmed two sets of masters to be transported on two separate flights. This was done to ensure that the masters arrived in Atlanta even if something happened to one of the aircraft.

Here's the crazy part, though: Dave specifically stated that one of the reasons behind this is "in case the Iranians shoot one of the aeroplanes down."

That's... something else. In fairness to Meltzer, there's a decent chance he's joking around, as it's often hard to tell from his broadcasting style.

Regardless, at least we know the footage is going to make it to the TV studio in time.
