Former AEW World Heavyweight Champion Chris Jericho recently spoke with TV Insider about the status of the postponed “Blood & Guts” WarGames-style match that was originally scheduled for a special episode of AEW Dynamite prior to the COVID-19 Pandemic, as well as the possibility of an Elite Deletion match, and some of the WWE releases ending up in AEW.
Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.
On the status of the Blood & Guts match and a potential Elite Deletion match in AEW: “I haven’t thought much about it because we’re not at that point. I think it’s great Matt is in AEW. I think it has made such a big impact. Right now, we’re just keeping the lights on and doing the best we can to make sure everybody is involved and continues their storylines. Then when the time is right, if there is an ‘Elite Deletion,’ we’ll do it. We still have ‘Blood and Guts’ [the postponed March special that was to feature Hardy and The Elite vs. The Inner Circle] to do and a lot of other stuff. For right now, we have to continue just being as creative as we can and come up with as many ideas as we can to keep the ball moving.”
On the possibility of talents included in recent massive WWE releases ending up in AEW: “It’s an interesting time right now, because a lot of guys got released. By proxy, you went from a business that was very profitable in many different levels to everything grinding to a halt. Hopefully, many of them will get picked up by the different companies. Some guys may have to go overseas. I don’t know what AEW has planned. That’s not really my wheelhouse. But I’m sure everybody is going to land where they should land. It’s just how it goes.”
