Preview: AEW Dynamite (7/19/23) – Blood and Guts

AEW Dynamite: Blood and Guts graphics featuring The Golden Elite.

This Wednesday night, All Elite Wrestling brings maximum violence to “Beantown” with the third installment of the AEW Dynamite special appropriately called “Blood and Guts.” The TD Garden, known for sporting the trademark Boston Celtics green will be bathed in blood and painted red as the Blackpool Combat Club and its cohorts take on The Elite in the event’s namesake match. Plus, a lot more coming your way on this special night!

Let’s not beat around the bush, and let’s get to it. It’s almost Wednesday night after all, and you know what that means! It’s time to preview AEW Dynamite: Blood and Guts! Let’s run it down.

Full AEW Dynamite Match Card – Blood and Guts:

  • Blackpool Combat Club, Konosuke Takeshita & PAC vs. The Golden Elite
  • FTW Championship Match: Hook (c) vs. “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry
  • Blind Eliminator Tag Team Tournament – Finals: MJF & Adam Cole vs. Sammy Guevara & Daniel Garcia

Hook, Line & Sinker

Forbidden Door proved to be one of the most memorable events of 2023, and a significant moment that made it more noteworthy is  “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry crossing the line and attacking his JungleHook partner the FTW Champion Hook. These two were polar opposites but managed to co-exist somehow. However, those days seem far away now, as this Jack Perry is unrecognizable to many people.

He’s brash, he’s arrogant, and he wants the FTW Championship by any means necessary. Well, Hook wants Jack one-on-one and has been wanting to face him for weeks now. Both men will get what they want this Wednesday night at Blood and Guts. One wants gold, the other revenge. It’s Jack Perry versus Hook; FTW Title Match. Who walks away victorious?

Caged Chaos

The animosity between the BCC and The Elite has finally reached its fever pitch. After all the battles waged in the “Anarchy in the Arena” Match back at Double or Nothing, and the war their members had at Forbidden Door, there’s no better way to finally settle this barbaric rivalry than in a Blood and Guts Match. These two factions have been at it for months to establish who the dominant force really is in AEW.

However, both teams may regret it once they’re locked inside this unforgiving structure. We’ve seen Chris Jericho suffer an almost fatal fall at the hands of MJF in the first-ever iteration of this brutal match type. Last year, “The Ocho” was spun on top of the cage by the BCC’s own Claudio Castagnoli. While those matchups were epic, this year’s bout is extremely personal.

Why you may ask? Well, aside from the epic conclusion of the rivalry between The Elite and the BCC, this night marks the return of “The Bastard” PAC as the BCC’s fifth man, and the debut of one of the best professional wrestlers to ever grace the squared circle, Kota Ibushi. PAC has always had animosity with the members of The Elite. And this Wednesday, he exacts his revenge.

Unfortunately for the opposite side, Omega has the biggest “ace in the hole” anyone could have ever imagined, enlisting the help of his former Golden Lovers tag team to bring a definitive end to this conflict.

There’s no doubt in anybody’s mind that the 2023 edition of Blood and Guts will be the most sadistic and violent yet. It’s the end! The Golden Elite versus the Blackpool Combat Club, Konosuke Takeshita, and PAC; Blood and Guts! It all goes down this Wednesday night, AEW Dynamite only on TBS!
