Keep em coming. Wrestling feuds are designed to build over time and set a big match later on. Depending on how the story goes, a violent match might be the right solution in the end. Some feuds are built around people wanting to hurt each other and that allows for some interesting options for the big blowoff match. If the match is done right, things can go well in the end and hopefully that is the case again.
AEW has found a rather violent feud between Matt Hardy and Sammy Guevara. The feud had already begun but then was amped up when Guevara threw a chair at Hardy’s head and busted him open hardway. Hardy was not pleased and busted Guevara open during a tables match, but things were not done yet. Now they have another match set up on the bigger stage.
AEW has announced a Broken Rules match between Hardy and Guevara for All Out. The match will be contested under Last Man Standing rules, with the match ending when someone cannot answer a ten count. In addition, Hardy has agreed to leave AEW forever should he lose the match. There is no word on if this would be an actual departure or the beginning of a new character for Hardy.
This Sat 9/5 #AEWAllOut Live on PPV 8/7c!
-The winner will be the Last Man Standing, determined when one man can’t answer the referee’s 10 count.

They have a history. Check out how they got to this point:
Opinion: This is something that makes as much sense as anything else outside of maybe a First Blood match. That being said, the good sign about AEW is the fact that you could believe Hardy could lose here, which keeps a little drama in the match. Elsewhere, that kind of a stipulation makes the ending obvious so it is nice to see something else instead of what was expected.
