The COVID-19 pandemic has prevented fans from seeing the Blood and Guts match at AEW.
The original plan was for the game to take place in Newark, New Jersey in front of AEW’s largest paid crowd to date earlier this year.
The Inner Circle (Chris Jericho, Jake Hager, Sammy Guevara, Santana and Ortiz) were supposed to face the elite (Kenny Omega, Cody, Hangman Page and The Young Bucks) in the contest.
During an interview with 411 Mania, The Young Bucks (Matt and Nick Jackson) spoke about the match being postponed due to the virus and when fans can expect to see it take place.
He noted that it’s hard to say when exactly this will happen, as they have a lot of plans for the future.
“We spent a lot of money to build this structure. [Laughs] But the good thing about it is that at least we have it now. So we can pull the trigger at any time.
“I feel like we’re keeping this for the fans. I think that’s the main reason we didn’t, but it’s the biggest thing that has changed, not having this game. Because if you watch it the build-up too was so strong and our ratings were going up and it looked like we were going over a million for this show, and we probably would have, but we can’t control this. that is happening. around the world, so I think that was probably the biggest change, not making this cage match.
The Young Bucks also spoke about COVID-19 forcing AEW to think outside the box, AEW’s first year, and more. Check out the full interview here.
