At AEW Revolution, Team Taz members Brian Cage & Ricky Starks will face Sting & Darby Allin in a Street Fight. The FTW Champion nailed the legendary Sting with a powerbomb last week, showing that he won’t hold back against The Icon. Tonight however, Cage & Starks get a tune up match against Griff Garrison & Brian Pillman Jr, better known as Varsity Blondes.
But they need to watch out, as Sting is looking for payback, and Varsity Blondes aren’t slouches, having won four of their last six matches. Cage & Starks however, are in their third tag team match ever and have a 1-1 record.
Brian Pillman Jr. Gets Isolated
Starks & Pillman got this one started, two of the young stars of AEW. Pillman got the armbar, and Starks was able to slip out and grab it himself, but Pillman would counter with ease. Garrison got the tag, and Varsity Blondes would start to isolate Starks. Starks got moving after Pillman got a tag, but would get tripped up, causing him to crash outside and take a dropkick through the ropes.
Pillman got some heavy chops on Starks, before setting up Air Pillman and being shoved to the floor. Cage would powerbomb him into the steel post on the outside, before sending him back into the ring. Team Taz were now in firm control, with Cage continuing the beatdown of Pillman in the ring after finally getting a tag. Starks tagged back in, hit a big knee drop before just pummeling him with wild strikes in the corner.
Brian Cage Is A Machine
A snap suplex was followed by a tag to Cage, who hit a high angle backdrop for a two count. He’d grab Pillman and do some curls before dumping him over his head. Pillman needed a tag in the worst way, and he’d get an opening after some wild strikes, but took a dropkick to the face. Garrison finally got a tag, and he’d match the aggression of Team Taz, booting Cage in the face than diving over the top rope onto him.
Starks was hit with a big facebuster, and Cage had to break the pin up. Pillman dropped Cage with Air Pillman, before they’d hit a Dropkick Doomsday Device, but Starks kicked out. Cage got a blind tag in, and Starks ran through Garrison with a spear. A discuss lariat and the drill claw would end this one with a win in the Team Taz column.
