The original plan for the AEW Revolution pay-per-view was for the show to happen on Saturday, February 27 but the date has changed, according to the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter. This probably explains why there was no date mentioned when they announced the first match for the show.
Dave Meltzer reports that Saturday, March 6 and Sunday, March 7 have been floated as possible dates for the show. The reason why the show is being moved is that they would go against the Jake Paul pay-per-view, which is expected to draw a big number. Nothing has been signed for Jake Paul’s PPV, which means that the odds of that show happening are shrinking but presumably, AEW wants to avoid that date in case the show ends up happening.
It was announced on Thursday that Revolution will feature Sting’s first match in AEW. He will team with Darby Allin against Team Taz’s Ricky Starks and Brian Cage.
Sting is 61 years old and while he has said that he feels great, he does have a history of neck issues. Given his age and neck issues, it’s likely that this will be a cinematic match or at the very least, they will tape the match beforehand to protect Sting.
