The Inner Circle (Chris Jericho, Jake Hager, Sammy Guevara, Santana, and Ortiz) took on The Pinnacle (MJF, FTR, Wardlow, and Shawn Spears) in the Blood and Guts match on Wednesday’s episode of Dynamite.
The match lasted the majority of the second hour with the heels going over after MJF threatened to throw Jericho off the top of the structure. Guevara gave in and surrendered to his demands. After the match, MJF in true heel fashion tossed Jericho off the cage and through a crash pad.
Dave Meltzer noted on today’s Wrestling Observer Radio All Elite Wrestling had to cut down about four minutes of the match to get off the air in time. It was during the opening portion of the match as there was supposed to be a five-minute part.
“They shaved a lot of time by the way..it was actually about four minutes.”
Bryan Alvarez said it was probably because the Kenny Omega segment where he cut a promo about facing Orange Cassidy or PAC at Double or Nothing went too long.
