Blood & Guts match postponed by AEW

AEW planned on having the Blood & Guts match take place on next week’s Dynamite. However, due to the COVID-19 outbreak all over the world, the match will not be taking place.

Tony Khan took to Twitter and informed fans that the match will not be taking place next week. However, the company is determined to keep on producing the show every week. Due to the current state of events, Khan thinks it is best to postpone the match until the time is right.

The following message is from #AEW President & CEO @TonyKhan

Our goal every week with AEW Dynamite on TNT is to produce great shows for our fans, and I believe we do. We felt especially motivated to serve our audience this past Wednesday night given what the entire world is coping with, and hopefully we gave them a well-deserved escape during these trying times. Everyone at AEW is very proud of what we delivered and humbled by the response and the kind words we’ve received from fans and partners throughout the world.

Thank you! We plan to continue answering that calling with live weekly shows every Wednesday night on TNT, but the time and circumstances aren’t right for the card we had planned next week for Blood and Guts.

That show will happen when the time is right, but what you can count on instead this coming Wednesday night is a great live episode of AEW Dynamite featuring @IAmJericho confronting @MATTHARDYBRAND, face-to-face, one-on-one, for the first time ever and a tremendous night of wrestling action. In the meantime, until AEW Dynamite this Wednesday night, please follow us via social media and please be safe and smart so we can get back to seeing you all on the road as soon as possible.

Thank you for making this all possible for everyone here at AEW, it’s a dream come true to be able to do these shows for all of you.

While it might not be a decision that fans will approve of, it was certainly the right decision to make. We hope the outbreak will be contained soon enough and then we will get to see the match.

It also seems Chris Jericho will be facing off against Matt Hardy on next week’s Dynamite.

  • I agree to a point. I am sure they mean first time ever in AEW but they did not make that clear. As far as “pretending that anything outside their own walls does not exist.”, AEW acknowledges other wrestling promotions all the time on television. Just a couple of weeks ago, Matt Jackson brought up the Bullet Club which at the time was in ROH and NJPW. They have also bring up ROH, NWA, and WWE as well by name.

    “featuring @IAmJericho confronting @MATTHARDYBRAND, face-to-face, one-on-one, for the first time ever”
    And everyday AEW copies the WWE method … first time ever match between two guys who have faced each other before. This is typical WWE style, pretending that anything outside their own walls does not exist.
    Its almost like Matt never challenged Chris for his IC title back in 2001.
