AEW announces Dark tapings for May 1

The tapings will be held at Universal Studios in Orlando.

AEW will be back at Universal Studios for Dark tapings this weekend.

It was announced today that AEW Dark tapings will be held at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida on Sunday, May 1. There will be two sessions of tapings that day.

The first session will take place from 2-5 p.m. Eastern time, with the second session being held from 7-10 p.m. Eastern.

TBS Champion Jade Cargill, Powerhouse Hobbs, Wardlow, Orange Cassidy, Max Caster, Toni Storm, Eddie Kingston, Wheeler Yuta, Kris Statlander, Jay Lethal, Anna Jay, Angelo Parker, and Matt Menard are advertised for the tapings.

PWTorch reports that the Dark tapings were originally scheduled to be held on Saturday, April 30. The tapings being moved to May 1 led to AEW talent being pulled from indie shows they were scheduled for, including PWG's Delivering the Goods event.

Yuta, JD Drake, and Top Flight were pulled from the May 1 PWG Delivering the Goods show. Darius Martin of Top Flight is out of action with a leg injury and is expected to miss significant time.
