The reason given was that because of Blanchard's repeated interference in past matches and involvement in FTR's attacks on the Bucks, AEW management made the call to bar him from ringside.
Blanchard said he is planning a lawsuit if the situation doesn't get fixed, citing that other managers haven't been treated like this. FTR said it was favoritism but that they would win anyway.
If the Bucks don't win the titles Saturday, they will never challenge for them again.
Here's the full card for the Jacksonville, Florida show:
- AEW World Champion Jon Moxley vs. Eddie Kingston in an I Quit match
- AEW Tag Team Champions FTR vs. The Young Bucks (If the Bucks lose, they won't challenge for the tag titles again.)
- AEW Women's Champion Hikaru Shida vs. Nyla Rose
- TNT Champion Cody vs. Darby Allin
- World title eliminator tournament finals: Kenny Omega vs. Hangman Page
- Chris Jericho vs. MJF (If MJF wins, he joins the Inner Circle.)
- Matt Hardy vs. Sammy Guevara in an Elite Deletion match
- Orange Cassidy vs. John Silver
- The Buy-In: Serena Deeb vs. Allysin Kay
