Tony Khan has confirmed that any AEW staff or talent impacted by the impending onslaught of Hurricane Ian are free to miss this Dynamite and Rampage tapings.

The crew will tape both shows in Philadelphia this week, but Khan tweeted the following amidst increasing safety concerns.

A magnanimous gesture in light of the circumstances and wrestling's rotten history with forcing everybody to make towns regardless of any reason not to, Khan's setting a new precedent with the statement, even if there's a certainly a beneficial public relations element to the move too.

The Liacouras Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania will play host to the show this week, returning to the venue for the first time since April this year. The current card is set to feature Jon Moxley Vs Juice Robinson in a contenders match, Chris Jericho Vs Bandido for the ROH Championship (as well as a Championship celebration for Jericho set to take place presumably before the encounter), as well as pre-advertised promos from MJF and newcomer Saraya.
