PAC has done some fantastic work for AEW since its launch, with his matches with Kenny Omega, Jon Moxley and Orange Cassidy being particular highlights, all despite being rather different from one another.
Unfortunately, PAC has not been seen on TV in a number of months, because he is stuck in the UK and unable to fly across to the States as a result of travel bans imposed by the Coronavirus.
While we have seen the returns of Pentagon Jr, who was stuck in Mexico, and the likes of Evil Uno and Stu Grayson who were in Canada, there is no word on when we can expect to see PAC back on TV.
This is not only an issue that has impacted AEW, but also WWE too. Pete Dunne has not been featured on NXT TV in a number of months as he too is stuck in England and unable to re-enter the United States.
While speaking to The New York Post, AEW owner Tony Khan spoke about PAC’s status with the company:
“I really miss PAC a lot. Right now the border is not a great situation. As I understand it, if he were to go back to England, if he were to come here and he was able to get in, do a quarantine after travel then he would also, when he tried to go home, he’d be in a two-week quarantine before he could do anything. So it just doesn’t seem like a sustainable situation right now because PAC lives in England, so until travel is sustainable and he could do what he used to do, which is come here and stay and do a few shows and then go back to England and really commute across the Atlantic, it’s very challenging right now. Until it becomes safe to travel back and forth for PAC to make those trips internationally, until the border is really ready, I don’t think we can rush him back even though we’d love to have him.”
As Tony Khan says, while it would be great to see PAC back on TV relatively soon, it’s best to not rush things and only have him back when it’s 100% safe to do so.
