The real reason last night’s special Blood & Guts edition of AEW Dynamite took place specifically in Detroit has been revealed.
As explained by Eddie Kingston in an interview with WXYZ Detroit, AEW President Tony Khan presented a list of different cities that were options to host the show.
Kingston said that as soon as he heard Detroit, his eyes lit up and he knew that was the right place because of how the crowd would react to such a match.
“Detroit, for me, feels like home. Feels like New York and where I’ve hung out and grown up, the places I’ve been in Detroit. Places like Detroit, Chicago, Philadelphia, they feel like home. I was asked where would I like to do it, and they gave us a bunch of dates where we could possibly do it. And I heard Detroit. I said Detroit will get it. They’d get it and will understand the violence, and they will appreciate it. I’m not knocking anywhere else, but I remember when (AEW president Tony Khan) said Detroit, my eyes lit up.”
The Blood & Guts match saw Kingston’s team pick up the win, but the storyline is that he wasn’t happy with the outcome as it was his long-time rival Claudio Castagnoli who technically got the win for the team, rather than Kingston making Jericho submit, which was his ultimate goal.
As we covered earlier, Tony Khan announced to Detroit after the show that he plans to hold a pay-per-view there at some point in the future.
