Georgia Authorities Try To Shut Down AEW Tapings
This week’s AEW Dynamite tapings took place from QT Marshall’s Gym in Norcross, GA. This is where Tony Khan and the rest of the crew moved after Jacksonville no longer became an option for the empty arena tapings.
Unfortunately, it appears AEW is going to have issues in their new location as well.
Apparently, Georgia authorities arrived at the tapings on Thursday and attempted to have AEW shut things down. AEW did have have the proper paperwork in place so they were allowed to continue but Georgia state officials stayed on-site to ensure AEW did not break any of the guidelines and proper codes pursuant to the area and the COVID-19 pandemic.
This comes after Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, has gone viral with a press conference stating he’s just now learned that asymptomatic people can transmit COVID-19. He’s taken a lot of heat today for not being aware of basic information many people have known for days, if not weeks. He issued a stay-at-home order starting Friday that will be effective through April 13 but AEW was allegedly given the approval to finish taping before the shelter-in-place order takes hold.
The plan for AEW was to tape enough footage to air shows throughout April and May.
