In a recent interview with The Wrestle Buddies podcast, All Elite Wrestling superstar Jake Hager stated that there is expected to be 3,000 fans in attendance at Daily’s Place in Jacksonville, Florida for the Blood & Guts episode of AEW Dynamite this Wednesday.

“The fact that we’re about to have 3,000 people, 70 percent of the attendance back next Wednesday night for Blood & Guts, it’s going to feel like 300,000 to us in the middle of the ring.

It’s really cool to get you guys back, because I think it’s obvious by now, you guys are as much as part of the show as we are, you guys, we need the wrestlers, we need the referee, we need the referee and we need the fans, because with your reactions, it makes the show and so glad to have it back and so glad to have that refreshing bit of normalcy.

I’m so proud of AEW being a leader in society right now and really saying, no we can have fans, we can do it safely and we can still put on great shows, and I think once we do that, more and more companies are going to follow and it’s only going to be a matter of time.”
