On this week’s AEW Dynamite, Chris Jericho and The Inner Circle cut a promo on The Pinnacle and announced that on Wednesday, May 5 there will be a Blood and Guts match between the two.
Just before the COVID-19 pandemic began, AEW was supposed to have its first Blood & Guts Match, but the match had to be canceled.
In a Blood And Guts Match, there are two rings with one giant cage covering both rings, which is somewhat like a WarGames type of match and environment.
If AEW follows the same rules as the last Blood and Guts match, they are as follows:
- Two men enter the cage for one five-minute round
- Then every two minutes another participant enters
- Match officially begins after all ten men have entered the cage
- The winning team is determined by making any opponent submit or surrender (no pinfalls, no count-outs, or by escaping the cage)
