Unsurprisingly given the nature of the match in question, last night’s AEW Dynamite was largely dominated by the Blood and Guts, although the first half of the show was reportedly thrown together at the last minute due to several talents testing positive for Covid-19.

Speaking on the Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer revealed that plans were frequently changing very close to the show being aired due to the uncertainty regarding the talents that were available to compete.

“There were a lot of people who were not available for the show because of Covid. And that’s why they did not announce the show (other matches) until pretty much today other than the Blood & Guts, I don’t think they had any matches until this morning. They didn’t announce much of this show ahead of time because… they had to redo, whatever it was, the show was being put together late because of fears and things like that. So that’s why some of the matches, besides the Blood & Guts match, the matches themselves are not exactly the usual quality.”

Last night’s Blood and Guts main event saw Jon Moxley, Claudio Castagnoli, Wheeler Yuta, Eddie Kingston, and Proud & Powerful defeat the Jericho Appreciation Society, with Castagnoli and Kingston once again engaging in a dispute following the victory.
