Chris Jericho Offered To Hold AEW Blood & Guts In His Backyard

The match was originally set to take place in March 2020

In early 2020, issues between The Elite and The Inner Circle reached such heights that the first ever Blood & Guts match was announced to settle things between the two factions. But before the match could happen, the COVID-19 pandemic hit, and changed the plans of every major wrestling company in the world.

However, as revealed on the Talk is Jericho podcast, Chris Jericho wanted to press ahead with the match, and offered to host it in his garden:

“It’s funny, we’re actually sitting in my backyard right now and when the lockdown started and at one point, we were still thinking about maybe doing Blood & Guts last year and there was no where to do it,” said Jericho “I was like, ‘Why don’t we do it in my backyard and do kind of one of those Inoki-Saito island deathmatch things? There’s plenty of room here.”

The match would eventually take place between The Elite and The Inner Circle on May 5 2021.
