AEW booked a Blood & Guts match earlier in the year. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it did not end up taking place. The match is still going to take place but it will be a while.
Nick Jackson of The Young Bucks recently spoke to 411 Mania, where he said that AEW spent money building that Blood & Guts structure, which is similar to WarGames but cannot use the name. It till take time until fans can see the match.
“We spent a lot of money building that structure. But the good thing about it is that at least we now have it. So, we can pull the trigger on that at any time.”
“I feel like we are saving that for fans. I think that is the biggest reason we haven’t done it. But that is the biggest thing that changed, not having that match.”
Jackson added that AEW did not know what the Blood & Guts match would be. Once everything was settled, they had to cancel the match.
“I was just going to say too, at first we didn’t know what this was and nobody did, and we thought, let’s just put things on pause for a couple of weeks and then we will get back to where we were. And then there comes a point where this thing is not going away, so there is no sense in saving anything and now it is time to put the pedal to the metal and do what you had planned.
“At first, we thought we could stall it out a little bit and then a month or two months into it we all were in a room and we said, nope let’s just give them Dynamite!”
