During the match, The Elite (The Young Bucks, AEW World Tag Team Champions Kenny Omega & Hangman Page) and Matt Hardy were able to beat The Inner Circle (Chris Jericho, Sammy Guevara, Jake Hager, Santana, Ortiz).
AEW had to film this match over 2 days. It was filmed at the TIAA Bank Field in Jacksonville, Florida. This is also the home of NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars team. The team’s owner is AEW’s lead investor Shad Khan.
Tony Khan actually spoke about Stadium Stampede becoming an annual match in AEW. Tony Khan is the President of AEW. Khan stated that they were proud of the match. “To make the Stadium Stampede a signature match of ours, we all put in ideas,” Khan said.
“We all sat down. The big spots in the match, literally like Chris, Matt and Nick, Kenny, Matt Hardy, myself, we all put multiple ideas and multiple big spots in the match. I hope it’s a famous match that people talk about.
I think to us, it could be a signature match. I hope Stadium Stampede can be, well a signature match here in AEW. Something people will always remember. You know when a band puts together a song and everybody has a part in putting it together, I think that was this.
We all had a lot of fun putting it together, especially because it was the first time some of us been together in a couple of months. It was really fun. We haven’t seen Matt and Nick, especially Nick in over two months. Kenny, Chris, and Matt Hardy, we all been together all the time time.
A lot went into it and ideas. Chris is incredibly creative. Obviously, the Bucks, Kenny, they had a lot of great stuff. I’m sure Chris will do a lot of podcasts on what went into the process.”
