Tony Khan Hoped To Have Miro And Keith Lee Involved In Meat Madness Match At AEW Revolution

Tony Khan explains why he put the Meat Madness Match scheduled for AEW Revolution 2024 in the freezer for the time being.

Originally scheduled to be at least a Three-Way Dance between Lance Archer, Powerhouse Hobbs, and Wardlow, it was announced February 28 that the Meat Madness Match scheduled for the March 3 AEW Revolution event was being held off for now and replaced by an All-Star Scramble, featuring The previously announced three men in Meat Madness and adding Brian Cage, Chris Jericho, and HOOK, along with two names yet to be determined.

Speaking about the decision to change the match and the original inspiration for the match, Tony Khan noted on a media call prior to the Revolution event that he was inspired by the chats of "Meat" at events such as AEW All Out 2023 during the match between Miro and the aforementioned Powerhouse Hobbs.

Tony Khan also noted that he was hoping to have Miro and Keith Lee return for this big man buffet of sorts.

"I wanted to put a lot of the big wrestlers and get the crowd fired up for a multi-man scramble, a Meat Madness match. I think the crowd would enjoy it and it would be a lot of fun, but some of the wrestlers I was hoping to use....right now, Miro and Keith Lee are both out. Neither one is available, and some of our big men being out injured, I wanted to have the depth in the field to do the match I originally envisioned and people would enjoy that," he said when asked about the changes by Bill Pritchard of WrestleZone.

"Since we didn’t necessarily have the depth and we’re missing some of our big guys to do the Meat Madness multi-man scramble, we have other great stars and rivalries to showcase, so I made it an All-Star Scramble. When we get all of our big men healthy at the same time, I still want to take the Meat Madness concept off the shelf, get it out of the freezer, thaw it out, but until then I put Meat Madness on ice."
