A new report has details on some of the plans that had to be changed for AEW Dynamite due to Hurricane Ian. As previously reported, the company had to change up some of its plans due to Swerve Strickland and Samoa Joe not being able to make it to the show. The WON adds that Jake Hager was another name that was intended to be at the taping but was unable to attend, as was visible on TV since he wasn’t with the Jericho Appreciation Society for their segment.

The report notes that the tapings did have to be written, and that AEW advertised less matches and segments than usual due to it being clear there would be potential issues for the show. It was noted that Joe’s absence meant that a planned start for a Joe & Warldow vs. Swerve In Our Glory feud had to be stalled due to Joe and Strickland’s absences.
