AEW released a statement tonight from president & CEO Tony Khan saying that “the time and circumstances aren’t right for the card we had planned next week for Blood and Guts.”
The statement said that the “show will happen when the time is right” and this Wednesday’s show will feature “Chris Jericho confronting Matt Hardy, face-to-face, one-on-one, for the first time ever and a tremendous night of wrestling action.”
It also said that AEW plans to continue with “live weekly shows every Wednesday night on TNT.”
Message From AEW President & CEO Tony Khan
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 Chris Jericho confronting Matt Hardy, 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.
It’s not clear if only the “Blood & Guts” WarGames match has been postponed, or if the entire show will be changed.
Originally announced for next week’s show:
– Blood & Guts Match: The Inner Circle (Chris Jericho, Sammy Guevara, Jake Hager, Santana & Ortiz) vs. Cody, Kenny Omega, Hangman Page, Matt Jackson & Matt Hardy
– Parking Lot Fight: Best Friends vs. Lucha Bros
– Lumberjack Match: Wardlow vs. Luchasaurus
