Tony Khan Delays Blood & Guts, Next Week’s AEW Dynamite Will Feature Chris Jericho vs. Matt Hardy Instead

While All Elite Wrestling had advertised the Blood and Guts match for the next Dynamite, it won’t be the case.

AEW President Tony Khan announced that they’ll be delaying the match as the “the time and circumstances aren’t right for the card.” Instead, they’ll feature a live episode that is headlined by Chris Jericho going one-on-one with Matt Hardy. Khan thanks the fans for their support and says that he hopes they are giving fans a “well-deserved escape during these trying times.”

Check out Khan’s full message below:

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.
