More news on AEW. The company tried to delete all the references of Rey Fenix from this week’s AEW Dynamite. They were expecting Fenix to get cleared for action for the tapings of 10 June Dynamite. But that is not the case anymore and his planned match against Cody Rhodes has to be canceled.

Dave Meltzer from Wrestling Observer Radio is expecting Brock Lesnar will be booked for SummerSlam regardless of there being fans in attendance or not. Summerslam is announced for 23 August 2020. It was earlier announced to take place in Boston. However, the venue is likely to be changed.
Wrestling Inc reported that NXT Champion Adam Cole’s WWE contract is until August this year. Both parties are in discussion for a new contract but an extension is not signed yet. The website also mentioned that if Cole decides against signing a new contract, he will a free agent by the time AEW All Out 2020 comes around.
