Getting too much of a good thing isn’t a problem for the All Elite faithful.
AEW is now 3 for 3 with their pay-per-view events! Long-term booking with pay-offs well worth the wait is what separates AEW from everyone else in the game right now. Jericho/Kingston was the perfect opener. The tag team title match brought the expected action, suspense, and drama. Wardlow’s ladder match victory could be his launch pad to superstardom, and Swerve Strickland came off as a big deal during his contract signing.
Both women’s matches did well, considering they had to follow two outstanding matches, especially Baker/Rosa. What should have been a short six-man tag team match ended up being a crazy spot-filled affair that threw fans through a loop. Someone had to go in those spots, and while the crowd was exhausted, the matches were still entertaining.
A nearly 63-year-old Sting splashing Andrade off a balcony through a trio of tables is a sight that needs to be seen to be believed. Darby using the Scorpion Death Drop to set up the Coffin Drop was a nice touch, a glowing nod from student to teacher.
When Jeff Hardy eventually comes in, The Hardys vs. Sting & Darby will print money!
CM Punk/MJF and Daniel Bryan/Jox Moxley will go down as instant classics. Two completely different matches told two different stories that share one commonality, blood. The devil in the details exhibited Punk and MJF’s blood-soak hatred while Danielson and Moxley bleed out of a brutal necessity. Wardlow “accidentally” screwing over MJF was the icing on the cake, and WILLIAM REGAL slapping sense into Mox and Danielson was poetic in its simplicity.
Regal only makes AEW better.
When the main event began, Revolution had thrown everything at the audience, including the kitchen. What else could the Adams do? The first half of the match was a slow burn, but the second half was excellent. Usually, a plethora of superkicks in one match would be annoying. However, Page and Cole made it work as the intensity they threw with each kick exuded a slugfest with feet.
Some have called Revolution the best AEW offering yet. I’d rank Revolution a millimeter under last year’s All Out and Full Gear. However, I wouldn’t argue against it. In the end, no matter how you slice it, All Elite Wrestling put on another stellar show that fans won’t soon forget.
