The Young Bucks are undoubtedly in a league of their own when it comes to the business aspect of the industry. They are true veterans in the business and that includes AEW as well. They competed in the Blood & Guts match earlier this year and it appears they disclosed numerous cuts from the match.
On the July 19 edition of AEW Dynamite, the company held its third-ever Blood & Guts match, which saw The Golden Elite squaring off against the Blackpool Combat Club in an ultraviolent match.
The Golden Elite would win the match after buckets of blood were spilt. While speaking during episode #64 of the Swerve City Podcast, The Young Bucks confirmed that the match had to be taken home early and things were cut from it.
Nick: There’s some moments though (when I’m still wrapped up in wrestling), even like, I wanna say it was Blood & Guts. We had to take the match home quick.
Matt: We had to cut some stuff.
Nick: And I look at Matt and Hangman (Adam Page)…
Matt: He’s livid.
Nick: And I’m like, ‘Dang it! That wasn’t the best match! I wanted this to be the best match!’ And Matt’s like, ‘Are we all healthy?’ I’m like, ‘Yeah.’ ‘Can we walk?’ ‘Yeah.’ I was like, ‘Oh, you’re right.’
Matt: I go, ‘Then who cares?’ I go, ‘I’m going to Hawaii,’ because I knew I was planning a trip to Hawaii (he laughed).
Nick: But even I get lost sometimes in the moment. Man, I want it to go this way but whatever, I’m healthy.
Matt: I even said, ‘Did you try your best?’ I remember I said that to you. You’re like, ‘Yeah.’ I said, ‘I did too.’
Nick: That was in the ring. It’s not backstage. We’re literally — the bell rang, we’re raising our hands and I’m like, ‘Dang it.’
Matt: And then he’s funny because later that night, he and I, we were eating Wendy’s upstairs, just the two of us watching the match back and we were popping for everything and at the end of the hour, we’re like, ‘That was freaking great.’
Nick: I was like, ‘What was I mad about?’
The Blood & Guts match signified the end of The Elite vs The Blackpool Combat Club’s feud. We’ll have to wait and see whether next year’s Blood & Guts match will live up to expectations.
