In an interview with 411Mania.com, Nick Jackson of the Young Bucks talked about changes that AEW needed to make due to Covid-19 including the delay of the Blood and Guts cage match:
“We spent a lot of money building that structure. (LAUGHTER) But the good thing about it is that at least we now have it. So, we can pull the trigger on that at any time. I feel like we are saving that for fans. I think that is the biggest reason we haven’t done it. But that is the biggest thing that changed, not having that match. Because if you look at it, the buildup too it was so strong and our ratings were going up and it was looking we were going to above a million for that show, and we probably would have but we can’t control what is going on around the world so I think that was probably the biggest change, not doing that cage match.”
The match had originally been scheduled for the March 25th, 2020 edition of Dynamite in Newark, NJ.
