Current Situation hurts a lot of wrestling industries, WWE and relatively new promotion has also been affected by the current ongoing situation around the world, but that hasn’t stopped them from putting out content.
Last week’s edition of AEW Dynamite ended with Chris Jericho and Matt Hardy segment without a live crowd, and whilst the empty arena is strange, it did give AEW the time to tweak the segment.
On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer revealed that the entire segment was changed, thanks to the former AEW World Champion. He said:
“They taped that segment on Tuesday. Jericho absolutely hated it. They were gonna go re-tape it on Wednesday. They didn’t want to do it live you can’t do it live. They were gonna do it live and outdoors and then they realized that it was light out and you couldn’t tape in the afternoon and put it in the show.”
Hardy and Jericho are destined to meet in the ring again, as the pair will be on opposing sides in the Blood and Guts match, but that contest was postponed due to the current global situation, and it’s unclear when exactly it will take place.
But whenever this happens it will be interesting to see two former WWE stars facing each other in new promotions.
