AEW will present the violent spectacle of one of its signature matches on tonight’s “Dynamite.” The Jericho Appreciation Society and Blackpool Combat Club will clash in a “Blood and Guts” match.
Six men will form teams that collide inside a steel cage around two rings. The JAS side will feature Chris Jericho, Angelo Parker, Daniel Garcia, Jake Hager, Matt Maynard and Sammy Guevara. The BCC will be represented by new AEW Interim World Champion Jon Moxley, Claudio Castagnoli, Eddie Kingston, Ortiz, Santana and Wheeler Utah.
Castagnoli is the newest member of Blackpool Combat Club and will make his “Dynamite” debut tonight. He was a surprise opponent to Jack Saber Jr at Sunday’s Forbidden Door pay-per-view and won. Castagnoli was selected by BCC member Brian Danielson to face Saber, who has been sidelined with an undisclosed injury.
Danielson has not fought a match since Jericho Appreciation Society won over Blackpool Combat Club in a five-on-five “Anarchy in the Arena” match at the Double or Nothing pay-per-view. Danielson took a fall in that match.
Tonight’s “Blood and Guts” match will be the second of its kind on AEW. Pinnacle defeated The Inner Circle in the first “Blood and Guts” match, which was broadcast during the May 2021 episode of “Dynamite”. Jericho, Guevara and Hager were part of the inner circle team in that match.
The rules for the first “Blood and Guts” match began with one member of each team facing each other for five minutes. After that, different members of each team join the match every two minutes. Once everyone has entered the match, victory can be achieved by forcing the wrestler to surrender or surrender.
Jericho, Guevara, and Minoru Suzuki’s defeat of Kingston, Yuta, and Shota Umino at the Forbidden Door will result in JAS having a man advantage in tonight’s “Blood and Guts” match.
Also announced for tonight’s “Dynamite,” Jade Cargill will defend her TBS Championship match against Leela Grey. Kargil campaigner Stokely Hathaway called for an open challenge for tonight’s show. It was later announced that the match had been cleared, with Gray responding to the challenge. Kargil entered the match with a career record of 33–0.
Plus, Orange Cassidy prepares to face Ethan Page. Dan Lambert challenges Cassidy Page on Tuesday. Later the match was made official.
Cassidy was in one of the featured matches at Forbidden Door. He was defeated by IWGP United States Champion Will Osprey.
