The COVID-19 pandemic prevented fans from seeing the Blood and Guts match in AEW.

The original plan was for the match 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.

While doing 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 tough to say when it will exactly happen as they have a lot planned for the future.

"We spent a lot of money building that structure. [Laughs] 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. Because if you look at it, the buildup too it was so strong and our ratings were going up and it was looking we were going to above a million for that show, and we probably would have but we can't control what is going on around the world so I think that was probably the biggest change, not doing that cage match."

The Young Bucks also talked about COVID-19 forcing AEW to think outside of the box, the first year of AEW, and more. Check out the full interview here.
