Report: AEW Issued Five Refunds For Blood & Guts Due To Taping Format

A few fans cashed in a refund for AEW Blood & Guts, but not because of the action.

Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer reports that five fans were given refunds for AEW Blood & Guts due to how the show was presented live.

The first hour of Blood & Guts was taped in advance and fans in attendance watched it on the screens at Daily's Place. Their reactions were used as live reactions for those watching at home. This was done as the Blood & Guts cage took time to set up and they couldn't do it live, so it was already set up when fans had arrived.

Before the show took place, Tony Khan told the live audience the situation, which had reportedly been previously explained -- it had been mentioned on commentary weeks in advance that Blood & Guts was a one-match show, but AEW then announced more matches the week before the event. Khan noted that if those in attendance didn't understand how Blood & Guts would be filmed as a one-match live show and were unhappy, they could get a refund.

Roughly 1,500 fans were in attendance for Blood & Guts, which was the largest AEW attendance at Daily's Place since the pandemic. As previously reported, Daily's Place will be at full capacity for AEW Double or Nothing on May 30.
