Fightful Select reports that AEW is taping several shows this week and will be using many extras, with notes given out to coordinate the talent. As noted yesterday, Shawn Dean was given the role of coordinating the extras as part of his new deal. You can see several of the notes below, which were confirmed by people in AEW.

The extras were told that their main job during Dynamite was to be at ringside unless they were working on the show. The idea is to rotate the talent that are at ringside cheering on the talent. They were told to go over their match, then wear a jacket or t-shirt over their gear when at ringside, then rotate out and prepare for their matches when working the Dark and Elevation tapings. The extras were told that doing what is asked of them will go a long way with management and could get them booked in the future.

Extras were also given a Q&A form to help the announcers be more knowledgeable about them. They also have to provide a negative nose swab test result before they travel to Jacksonville. If they don’t have a negative test and end up positive, they have to quarantine in Jacksonville at their own expense.
