Dustin Rhodes Reveals That He Will Miss AEW Dynamite

Pro wrestling veteran and AEW star Dustin Rhodes took to social media earlier today and dropped the unfortunate news that he will be unable to attend "Dynamite: Fyter Fest Pt. 1" due to being ill. When someone in the comments section of his announcement asked if it was COVID-19, Rhodes noted that it does feel like when he had COVID in January 2022.

"Not at #AEWDynamite #FyterFest tonight as I am super sick at home. Y'all tune in to @TBSNetwork at 8/7 central. @AEW ... Think it is [COVID]. Feel like last time I got," Dustin writes.

Rhodes last wrestled in AEW during the "Royal Rampage" battle royal that aired on the June 29 edition of "Rampage". Though Dustin would put up a valiant effort, Brody King would walk away as the winner of the "Royal Rampage" battle royal and earn himself a shot at Jon Moxley's Interim AEW World Title.

Though Dustin will not be able to attend, other big moments are scheduled for tonight including a three-way tag team match that pits the current champions, The Young Bucks, against Keith Lee & Swerve Strickland and Powerhouse Hobbs & Ricky Starks. Wardlow will also defend his TNT Championship for the first time when he goes one-on-one against "Freshly Squeezed" Orange Cassidy.

Below is the current lineup for tonight's Fyter Fest, taking place from the The Enmarket Arena in Savannah, Georgia:

* AEW World Tag Team Champions The Young Bucks defend against Keith Lee & Swerve Strickland and Powerhouse Hobbs & Ricky Starks in a three-way match

* Non-title match: AEW Interim World Champion Jon Moxley vs. Konosuke Takeshita

* TNT title: Wardlow defends against Orange Cassidy

* Claudio Castagnoli vs. Jake Hager

* Serena Deeb vs. Anna Jay
