AEW announced that the Dark Order's John Silver and Alex Reynolds will replace FTR in the no. 1 contenders' tag team battle royal at Wednesday's Beach Break.
The reason given was that "upon review of their conduct after the Jungle Boy v. Dax Harwood match, FTR are suspended from competition for 1 week." According to Dave Meltzer, it's part of a storyline and not injury/COVID-19 related.
Silver and Reynolds will join fellow Dark Order members Stu Grayson and Evil Uno in the ten team match that includes champions The Young Bucks, Top Flight, Private Party, Jurassic Express (Jungle Boy & Luchasaurus), Chris Jericho & MJF, The Acclaimed, Sammy Guevara & Jake Hager and Santana & Ortiz. The winner gets a title shot at March's Revolution pay-per-view and if the Bucks win, they choose their opponents.
The live show from Daily's Place in Jacksonville, Florida will also feature:
- AEW Champion Kenny Omega and Impact Tag Team Champions The Good Brothers vs. Jon Moxley, Fenix and PAC
- Dr. Britt Baker vs. Thunder Rosa
- Lance Archer vs. Eddie Kingston lumberjack match
- The wedding of Kip Sabian and Penelope Ford
