• Reason Behind TNT Officials Approving Blood During AEW Dynamite Main Event
As seen on this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, Cody Rhodes was busted open during the Steel Cage main event match.
You can watch it below:
According to the Wrestling Observer, AEW officials approved the involvement of blood in that match with TNT officials and TNT officials are also trying to help AEW in their war against WWE:
“We had a lot of blood on television which is very interesting. I mean, obviously they had to clear it ahead of time.
TNT is very much behind these guys for obvious reasons. They know they’re underdogs in a lot of ways and they’re giving them leeway because they know they’re in a fight.”
