Tony Khan says he’s open to the return of the Blood & Guts match in advance of AEW’s pay-per-view event, Double or Nothing.
Many fans had theorised that the five-on-five match between the Jericho Appreciation Society and the team of Bryan Danielson, Jon Moxley, Eddie Kingston, Santana and Ortiz would be a Blood and Guts match, but instead, it was announced as ‘Arcade in the Arena’ and will basically just be an anything goes brawl.
Appearing on In The Kliq, Tony Khan discussed why fans wouldn’t be seeing a ‘Blood & Guts’ match on Sunday’s pay-per-view, Double or Nothing, saying:
“I don’t think it would necessarily make sense with what we had set up on the pay-per-view in terms of getting the cage up and down for Blood & Guts and also the seating because it means less ringside seats. We have such great fans coming to the show and such a big attendance, actually a record gate for AEW. It’s the first time we’ve ever sold over a million dollars, just in tickets, we’re over $1.1 million in tickets for Double or Nothing before we even hit pay-per-view. It’s going to be a huge pay-per-view audience. Fans all over America and all over the world are talking about Double or Nothing.”
When the host suggested that William Regal could announce a Blood & Guts match in a style similar to his signature bellow for War Games, Khan said:
“It’s an interesting thought and an interesting thing you bring up. I would not rule that out in the future at all. I would love for Blood & Guts to return to AEW. We still have the cage. It would make a lot of sense for Blood & Guts to come back to AEW.”
The first Blood & Guts match in AEW took place last May on AEW Dynamite which saw The Pinnacle (MJF, Wardlow, Shawn Spears, Cash Wheeler, and Dax Harwood) defeat The Inner Circle (Chris Jericho, Jake Hager, Sammy Guevara, Santana and Ortiz) in a Blood and Guts match in the live main event.
Double or Nothing is coming to AEW fans live from Las Vegas, Nevada on Sunday, May 29, 2022.
