Someone has to get in there. While WWE may be presenting Elimination Chamber this weekend, it might not even be the most anticipated cage match coming this month. AEW is running their own major cage match this month with Blood and Guts, which is their name for WarGames. WWE has run their own version before, but this one is feeling different. Now we know what it is going to mean.
WarGames is one of those matches that almost gives you chills. Some of the battles back in the WCW days were the things of legends and they make you wonder what kind of battles you could have in today’s wrestling world. The problem is you can’t have a classic WarGames match under WWE’s current rules. AEW does not follow those rules though and now we have people entering the battleground.
AEW has announced that Blood and Guts will be a ten man tag with the Inner Circle (Chris Jericho, Jake Hager, Sammy Guevara, Santana and Ortiz) facing the Elite (Kenny Omega, Cody, Adam Page, Young Bucks). The match will take place on the March 25 edition of Dynamite in Newark, New Jersey, with the rules being announced on this coming week’s Dynamite. There is no word on if there will be a prize for the winner aside from bragging rights.

The match is going to be a big deal. Check out the teaser:
Opinion: I mean if we just have to. This is the kind of thing that old school WCW fans have been wanting to see for over twenty years now. While the WWE version was a nice surprise, it hasn’t quite felt like a true WarGames match. They could do some very good and violent stuff here so maybe we could be in for a heck of a night. If nothing else, it’s nice to hear the idea of some violence, which is what made these matches famous.
Who do you see winning the match? How much violence are you expecting? Let us know in the comments below.
