AEW fans have had a lot to celebrate during tonight's special Blood and Guts episode of Dynamite, though no one expected there to be a celebration of a former WWE Tag Team during the festivities. The Blood and Guts match featured the Jericho Appreciation Society taking on the Blackpool Combat Club, and the newest addition to the Blackpool Combat Club is what set things in motion. The latest addition to the crew was Claudio Castagnoli, who debuted at Forbidden Door, and it turned out that after the first wave in tonight's match, he was joined by Jake Hager, his old We The People teammate in WWE. Lots of fans noticed too, because soon after they came to face to face We The People chants rang out, and fans were reacting immediately on social media.
We The People was the catchphrase of The Real Americans, which were made up of Hager (going by Jack Swagger then) and Claudio (then going by Cesaro). They were managed by Zeb Colter (Dutch Mantell), and as the name suggests, their gimmick was that they were 'real" Americans because they were either born here or came to the country legally. They got the catchphrase over with fans, and while they were only together for a little while before Cesaro would split off and go with Paul Heyman.
Still, the fans definitely remember, and there were quite a few reactions to the We The People chants online. You can check out some of the reactions starting on the next slide, and let us know what you think of Blood & Guts so far in the comments.
