The day after Lance Archer said he will be out for a few weeks due to a positive COVID-19 test, rising prospect Ben Carter tweeted Thursday that he has tested positive as well.

The 23-year-old didn’t explain how he got it or when, but said he feels fine other than losing some of his taste. His return is unknown.
Carter, a trainee of Seth Rollins and Marek Brave’s wrestling school, recently got praise for his debut match against Ricky Starks on Dark and wrestled twice on Tuesday, losing to Scorpio Sky on Late Night Dynamite and on Dark in a win over Lee Johnson.
Fightful and Spectrum Sports 360’s Jon Alba reported late Wednesday that several AEW wrestlers and talents tested positive for COVID-19 in the weeks following their September 9th tapings. The company has yet to make any public comment to either outlet about the report.
Archer tweeted Wednesday he got it from a family friend and would be out for two weeks. As of now, no one else from AEW has said they have tested positive.
