Obviously, the Blood and Guts Steel Cage Match never happened. “It was looking we were going to above a million for that show, and we probably would have but we can’t control what’s going on around the world so I think that was probably the biggest change, not doing that cage match,” Matt said. Notably, at the top of the list were plans for COVID-19 with live crowds returning to shows.
Wouldn’t have worked as well if there were people out there. “We went home and shot the Stadium Stampede match almost like a pilot to show Tony, ‘Hey, this is our vision of what we can do…in front of nobody,” said Matt. The match between Inner Circle and Butcher and Blade was also highlighted as being forced to think outside the box. Notably, without the Pandemic, there may have never been an Arena Stampde Match.
EVPs, Tony and even the wrestlers collaborate. “We have really stretched that as far as we can,” said the Young Bucks. The team will face Private Party, The Butcher & The Blade, and Alex Reynolds and John Silver on Wednesday’s AEW Dynamite. They will also face WWE World Tag Team Champions FTR at Full Gear on November 7.
