It’s time for the first major All Elite Wrestling PPV of the year, AEW Revolution! This is the second event under the Revolution moniker, with last year’s being considered one of their best shows ever. They have another stacked card set for this year, with a main event that might change the lives of both Kenny Omega & Jon Moxley. We have also have the AEW World Women’s and Tag Team Championships on the line, Sting in a street fight, and so much more. Let’s break down the major announced matches.
Kenny Omega & Jon Moxley Meet In An Exploding Barbed Wire Deathmatch
Ever since Kenny Omega cheated to take the AEW World Championship from Jon Moxley, this has been impending. We always knew Moxley would get another shot at Kenny Omega, especially after they crossed paths in a brutal street fight on Dynamite. However, few expected it to be an Exploding Barbed Wire Deathmatch.
These two have proved they can go extreme at Full Gear 2019 in their lights out match, and this match is a potential career ender. Jon Moxley is ready to give his career to reclaim the AEW World Championship, but is Kenny Omega ready to do the same to keep it? We’ll find out tonight.
A Major Signing To Be Announced
When Paul Wight joined AEW, that was a big shock in its own right. However, during his first appearance on Dynamite, he’d drop a bombshell of an announcement. AEW have an even bigger signing on the way.
Wight has described them as Hall Of Fame worthy. Tony Khan has stated it’s one of his all time favorite wrestlers. We know they’re coming in on a big multiple year contract. Names like Brock Lesnar, Christian, Kurt Angle & Rob Van Dam are all in the mix, but we’ll have to wait and see who it is.
Ryo Mizunami Faces Her Ultimate Test
The story of Ryo Mizunami in AEW is an interesting one. She was thinking about retirement before getting to perform at Double or Nothing in 2019, but was unable to make it back into the AEW mix until the Women’s World Championship Eliminator Tournament. Mizunami was one of the handpicked talents for the Japanese bracket, which was put together by Hikaru Shida herself.
Mizunami would defeat Maki Itoh, Aja Kong, Yuka Sakazaki, and then Nyla Rose to win the tournament. Now, she faces Hikaru Shida for the AEW Women’s World Championship tonight. Shida has had a month to scout Mizunami, let’s hope she was paying attention.
The Young Bucks Go To War With MJF & Chris Jericho
The Young Bucks were always set to become AEW World Tag Team Champions, and they were able to do this when they beat FTR back at Full Gear 2020. However, now they might have an early end to their reign, as they are coming into their match with Inner Circle member Chris Jericho & MJF fighting on emotion.
This is because MJF & Jericho decided to send a message by beating down their father when he came to see his sons on AEW Dynamite. We all know how dangerous of a tag team wrestler Chris Jericho is, and how good MJF is when he wants to be. If The Young Bucks can’t get their heads straight tonight, their reign will be over.
Sting Makes His AEW In-Ring Debut
Tonight see a major in-ring debut for AEW. WCW icon Sting is back, and as proven by being able to shrug off a powerbomb from Brian Cage, as good as ever. He has taken aim at Team Taz due to his kinship with TNT Champion, Darby Allin. Tonight, they team up to face Brian Cage & Ricky Starks of Team Taz, and it’ll be a Street Fight!
Also on tonight’s card is Matt Hardy vs. Hangman Page, a tag team Casino Battle Royale, Miro & Kip Sabian vs. Chuck Taylor & Orange Cassidy, and a six way ladder match to name the next contender for the TNT Championship.
