Blood & Guts is AEW's take on WarGames. WWE owns the trademark on WarGames, meaning AEW can't use that exact term. "Blood and Guts" was a term used by Vince McMahon during the WWE second quarter 2019 earnings call when he said, "We're not gonna do blood and guts, such as being done on perhaps a new potential competitor" in reference to AEW. AEW filed for the "Blood and Guts" trademark on November 13, 2019.
The rules for the match will be announced on this Wednesday's episode of AEW Dynamite.
