News on Excalibur Missing Last Week's AEW Dynamite; Status This Week Unclear

-- Excalibur was off the 7/29 Dynamite show with no explanation given by him or the company - either publicly or privately. However, the belief is that he asked to be off the show due to people uncovering him using the N-word in a PWG angle back in 2003, according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. The incident was known to AEW and Excalibur apologized for it shortly after it happened, but he felt with people making an issue about it, he didn’t want to be on the show and draw more focus to it. It ended up causing the opposite effect as his absence without explanation drew more attention on it and at this time, it’s not known if he will be back next week.
