AEW issued a statement shortly after learning of Wheeler’s arrest saying, “We are closely monitoring the situation,” and adding that Wheeler was “fully co-operating with local authorities.”
The arrest warrant was issued on July 28 and Wheeler pleaded not guilty on Aug. 3.
Wheeler and Dax Harwood are the AEW tag-team champions and they had been in the ring earlier that week in Nashville. They are scheduled to defend the World Tag Team Championship against Matt and Nick Jackson of the “Young Bucks” on Wednesday at a pay-per-view event in London.
Wheeler and Hardwood competed in WWE as The Revival under the names Dash Wilder and Scott Dawson.
According to pro wrestling news in the Wrestling Observer, at a hearing held on Friday, state prosecutors reportedly said that Wheeler’s arrest appeared to be connected to a “road rage-type incident.”
At some point during the unspecified incident, Wheeler “allegedly flashed a handgun at the alleged victim.”
