Current TNT Champion Cody Rhodes is out of tonight's AEW Battle Of The Belts, as he was not medically cleared for tonight's event.
Rhodes has tested positive for COVID-19, and has taken to his Instagram to speak about it.
“I appreciate everybody reaching out. Brandi and I are in isolation with family that have unfortunately tested positive for COVID. It’s been a scary time dealing with such a strong virus and the complications that can come with it. We are doing all we can to nurse and protect the family during this time. I will remain in quarantine as long as needed. Every day is more encouraging. Thank you immensely for your support and respect of our privacy. Thank you to AEW for understanding and allowing me to be where I am needed today, and for still allowing the TNT Title to be represented. I look forward to being back soon. All the love in the world!”
Due to Cody’s withdrawal, his brother Dustin Rhodes will now face Sammy Guevara tonight in a match for the interim TNT Championship. The card will be broadcast live on TNT at 8:00 pm ET.
