In a tweet sent out from the AEW Twitter account, President and CEO Tony Khan announced that plans are moving forward to deliver a live Dynamite show next week but the Blood and Guts card that was planned has been postponed.
This is understandable and most (if not all) fans would agree that the Blood and Guts match should take place in front of wrestling fans. The original plan was for the show to take place in Newark, New Jersey in front of AEW’s largest paid crowd to date. Obviously, with what is going on in the world, plans have changed.
Khan’s full statement is below:
“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.”
