Not the best news for PWG & Black Label Pro fans.

It looks like we wont be seeing any AEW talents involved with the PWG & Black Label Pro shows on May 1st anymore. This reportedly comes after a new scheduling conflict.

According to PWTorch, AEW has moved the previously planned April 30 AEW Dark Tapings to May 1, meaning that any talent planned for Dark now cannot appear on any indie shows on that date. Two big indie shows happening on May 1 are a PWG & a Black Label Pro show, which up until very recently had numerous AEW talent booked for them.

“AEW has pulled select talent from select independent wresting events to accommodate a scheduling conflict.

Sources tell PWTorch that the company is moving previously set AEW Dark tapings from April 30 to May 1. Talents that were planning on wrestling elsewhere on May 1 were held off so that they are available for the tapings. PWG and Black Label Pro were the two independent promotions impacted by the move.”

Lee Moriarty, Skye Blue & Jake Something have all been removed from the Black Label Pro show

Quick note: Jake Something is not currently signed to AEW but of course could still be appearing at the Dark tapings on May 1, though this has not been reported or confirmed yet.

As far as PWG goes, JD Drake, Top Flight and Wheeler Yuta will now not be on their May 1 show:
