Brace yourselves gorehounds, as pro wrestling is about to get a huge dose of horror! In a killer crossover event, All Elite Wrestling (AEW) will host the first-ever “Texas Chainsaw Massacre Death Match Championship” on their August 16th episode of Dynamite.
This brutal battle set to air on TBS will pit wrestling legends Jeff Jarrett and Jeff Hardy against each other in a no-holds-barred hardcore brawl inspired by Leatherface and his iconic slasher franchise. Promos even tease ol’ Leatherface himself may make a special appearance to bring the carnage.
Leave it to the upstart AEW promotion to innovate with this kind of horror-themed mayhem tailored to scare up ratings. Their rival WWE has incorporated cinematic horror elements into matches before, but never dedicated an entire gimmick bout to celebrating a legendary boogeyman’s legacy of chainsaw madness.
It’s genius cross-promotion for Gun Interactive’s upcoming Leatherface video game release on August 18th. AEW aims to become the destination for horror fans and gamers craving some gore-soaked wrestling action. Their boldness breaks boundaries, with this Chainsaw Death Match likely being just the first horror crossover showcase if it draws strong viewership.
And who better to unleash the mayhem than famously unhinged competitors like Jarrett and Hardy? With their unpredictable, high-flying styles, the potential for savage brutality and shock value feels endless. This could shape up to be one of the wildest and bloodiest pro wrestling spectacles ever.
Will Leatherface appear to drag someone’s face across the steel steps with his teeth? Might we see a guitar broken over someone’s skull or a dive from the ring posts onto barbed wire? One thing’s for certain – this chainsaw-slashing showcase aims to thrill horror and wrestling fans alike by turning the squared circle into Leatherface’s personal house of horrors. AEW is about to stain their mat with blood, sweat and flesh.
